Prosecco would be lovely as a shawl, a pair of gloves, socks, or a long sleeved blouse! Holding two strands together gives you a DK weight and creates a lovely effect with the variegation. As well, holding it with a mohair softens the variegation slightly and adds a beautiful halo to your work. Prosecco would also make for a beautiful weaving yarn, as it has a high twist and plenty of strength!
