I'm using this Portuguese cotton yarn: Trama Rustica. I bought it a couple of weeks ago in Lisbon, where I was for a few days to attend a meeting. Lucky me. ;-) I think it's ideal for this project, it's quite bulky and the structure is a bit rough (but not too much). It's also available in a thinner version, I bought a couple of those skeins last year.) *Boring picture alert, I made this photo in my hotel room and didn't have a decent background.*
I guessed one skein would be more than enough for one bag, but alas, as per usual when it comes to calculating (or rather: guessing) the amount of yarn I need, I misguessed. Luckily I will be going back to Lisbon within a couple weeks so hopefully I can get my hands on a second skein.
In case you're curious: this is the bag I made last year. (Market bag turned into yarn bag...)
