Furls Crochet announced the launch of their Wander Palette Packs in late Feb 2021. I was lucky enough to receive the Autumn Palette to test out.
It was exciting to receive the yarn, and the “Not all who WANDER are lost” tote bag in the mail.
In recent years I’ve traveled with my family. We try to learn about different cultures different and immersed our kids in the Spanish language.
We had some incredible adventures in Mexico and Spain. It opened our eyes to being global citizens.
With its exploration of 14 colors, the Wander yarn reminds me of the beauty I saw in Mexican artisans’ textiles. Such vitality and joy!
The Autumn Palette includes Dragonfruit (pink), Thatch (Dark caramel-brown), Velvet (dark-plum), Snow (white), and Ambrosia (mustard-yellow).
This yarn is squishy and super soft. I was surprised by the light feel and silky texture. I don’t use acrylic yarns much as I’ve found they have a ‘plastic’ feel. Wander yarn is nothing like that!
The colors work so well together. There’s something quite delightful about the combination of mustard yellow, pink, and plum.
Furls Wander Yarn Palette Pack Details
- 5 skein bundles of 100% acrylic yarn, #4 worsted weight
- Each skein weighs 100g/120yd/109m
- It comes in five different palette versions
Furls suggest a 5mm (H) crochet hook and (US8) 5mm knitting needles.
I love the weighted feel of the Odyssey hook. It’s a little shorter than the streamlines, but this didn’t bother me. I appreciate the ergonomic design of the teardrop handle as it was very comfortable to use.
The Teak Streamline is lovely, and light and the surface is smooth. I adore the grain of the wood. The resin Cafe & Cream Swirl Streamline hook is unique. It’s like an iced coffee in the form of a hook.
Check out all the options of Furls Wander Palette Packs.
Purchasing the five skeins together is cheaper than buying them individually.
The “Not all who WANDER are lost” tote bag is very roomy, and the cotton canvas material is sturdy.
I love the button clasp, which closes the top. You can wash the bag by hand and dry it on the line. I wouldn’t recommend putting it in the washing machine as the print of the front could rub off.
The Wander Yarn can be machine washed, but please don’t tumble dry it.
I did a few Mosaic swatches I’d been learning and decided to create an Apache Tears Mosaic Pillow with all the colors.
As I crocheted with the Wander Yarn, I noticed how soft and fluffy it was. There’s a halo to this yarn. The feel on my skin was comfortable.
I noticed some splitting. This was perhaps due to my tension and getting used to the different Furls hooks. Once I got going, I found there was less splitting.
So far, I’ve only found one knot where the string was joined in the Snow colorway. There hasn’t been in any of the other 4 colorways.
This is annoying when it happens in the middle of a row. Fortunately, I’d seen it. Because the Apache Tears pattern uses a different color for each row, I was able to cut out the knot.
The Apache Tears pattern using the Furls Wander Yarn Autumn palette creates a thick fabric. The fluffiness is comforting. It’ll be interesting to see how the texture performs over time.
If you’re looking for a soft, slightly fluffy yarn, Wander Yarn is great.
I was impressed by the range of colors in the Autumn pack. I like that the talented people at Furls have created colorways, and you don’t have to choose your own. The other palette options are also gorgeous.
I’ll continue to update my progress on the crocheted pillow, which I hope will look great.
