Schachenmayr Argentina

Schachenmayr Argentina is a ruffle yarn with a fun addition. A thick strand of fiber is plyed on one side of the yarn to add a whole lot of texture and interest to your next ruffle scarf! Use it as an accent to a piece, or make your entire project out of Schachenmayr Argentina. Made in China. 

Note: the ball band on this yarn might say "SMC", but this is the same company as Schachenmayr.

        2 skeins would make a nicer scarf. One is too short. A little sheen to the yarn would make it prettier.

        Comments about SMC Argentina:

        I bought several balls to make scarves for gifts. It is a fast knit, which is good. My main complaint is that in one ball there might be as many as 3 or 4 joining knots where the yarn is in pieces. The knot is bulky so I undo it and simply continue knitting.
        There are too many other yarns out there that do the same thing to go thru this frustration.
