What a brilliant idea!

Someone at Katia deserves a gold star at least.  :-)

This is a set of ten skeins, each 100% cotton, each 36 yards (33m), all solid colors.  

They have been combined with an eye to giving you sets for knitting or crocheting Amigurumis!

So what are Amigurumis, you may ask?

According to Wikipedia: 

Amigurumi (編みぐるみ, literally means "crocheted or knitted stuffed toy") is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning "crocheted or knitted", and nuigurumi, meaning "stuffed doll".

I did a bit of hunting.  Here are some patterns from Etsy.  And here are some on Ravelry.  

And just to winnow it down a bit, these are ones I really like and chose to "favorite" on Ravelry.

And here are some books (via Amazon though certainly you can use your favorite bookseller) that I thought very enticing indeed.
