It would depend on whether the deserted island in question was in a warm section of the earth or a cold one. If it was a cold one, Peace Fleece, a sweater's worth in every color they make. Warm? I'd pick miles of sock yarn, specific company not so important.


I have seen it at Black Sheep but it didn't come home with me. Maybe I should try it out so it can nudge over my desert island (why not dessert island?) choice of Handmaiden Marrakesh. I could only take one project to Africa and it was a good choice.


Dale of Norway Baby Ull in every color imaginable.


That's a tough one, but I'd hope to be stranded on a cold desert island as wool is my favorite fiber.

That is lovely, Li! I have also worn my Clapotis more than any other project I have made. It is very versatile for traveling, and I take it along on all my trips now. I made it from Elizabeth Lavold's Silky Wool, which is a dream to work with and seems to wear very well. It is one of my favourite yarns.


It's going to be pretty...I never did make a Clapotis...may have to dig out that pattern one of these days!
My all time favorite project was the Lady Entrelac shawl that I made from Noro Silk Garden. I use it all the time, and I love, love, love the way that yarn creates the most interesting texture and little blocks of color with the entrelac.
