This is a beautiful yarn. Very soft, wonderful texture. Bugger to knit with. Not quite true. Fairly easy to knit but picking up stitches not so easy cos of not being able to see the stitches well. Sewing was the same. I could not finish in my usual way, invisible seems, because I could not see! So it was sewn together using backstich.
I had some of this yarn a few years ago, only enough for a a couple of garments and I sold those. I then found I couldn't get anymore! Then a few weeks ago, I found a job lot of it very cheap so snapped it up.
80% lambswool, 20% Nylon. Machine washable and tumble dryable. No shrinking.
