Apolo is a new eco-friendly yarn incorporating recycled fibers to make a yarn that is both durable and kind to the planet. It would be lovely for warm weather garments, accessories, and household items plus perfect for amigurumi. And, at this price with these beautiful colors it is hard to beat!

It comes in very generous 200g balls 342 yards of Worsted to Aran weight yarn! It is quite versatile and can tolerate a wide range of gauge as you can see in the pictured swatch showing this yarn knit on 6 different needle sizes! The smallest needle made a tight fabric ideal for amigurumi and the largest needle was as loose as we would recommend for a garment.
