I won a lot of Moda Dea Ticker Tape yarn in a Listia auction last year. I had no idea what I was going to do with it. In fact, I ended up offering some in a yarn giveaway in December. However, I’ve finally started using it and I actually kind of like it.

The Yarn

Moda Dea Ticker Tape Yarn. A discontinued yarn from Coats and Clark. 100% Nylon. 67 yards to a 50 gram ball.

The Color I Used

The color of the yarn that I received is called Money. It’s a combination of pink, blue and green.

Yarn Used to Crochet

Tried a crochet cowl and didn’t like it. Then tried a large-hook open work approach to adding it to the bottom of a dress instead and liked the effect.

Yarn Review

My mostly succinct ten-word yarn review:

  1. Ribbon
  2. Stretchy
  3. Wide
  4. Pretty
  5. Soft
  6. Italian
  7. Hand wash
  8. Happy
  9. Novelty
  10. Maybe (I might use this again if I came across it but note that it’s a discontinued yarn so it’s not likely).

How do you recommend using ribbon yarns?
