This stretchy cotton & spandex yarn makes comfortable summer headbands. I used a lacy motif for breathability. You can probably get two headbands from one ball provided they aren't too wide, or an adult & child-sized band. The blueberry shade is perfect! The yarn does split easily and I expect the colour to bleed in the wash.
I love all of the Cascade Fixation yarns....especially the variegated. It is cotton with some Lycra so it has a great stretch to it. I knit rather tightly (I am new at knitting) so it works great for me as the socks stretch to put on. Wonderful yarn. ...The only issue is that it is rather pricy and takes 2 full balls to make one pair of women’s ankle length socks. It would be nice to have you carry ALL of the variegated colours.
