                        I bought this yarn primarily for color (French Roast)as I was looking for yarn to make a scarf at my daughter's request to go with a camel coat. I thought that the fiber combination would make it soft enough to wear close to the skin, but structured enough that it would stand up for the long haul. I haven't finished the scarf yet, but I have enjoyed knitting with it and it does appear to meet the parameters.

                              This is one of my favorite yarns. I first used it when it as a Nashua yarn, and was delighted to find that Classic Elite is now producing it. It is wonderful for colorwork and has a lovely hand.

                                This is my "go to" yarn. The colors are lovely and coordinate with one another so nicely. Since I mostly do stranded colorwork, this is a huge bonus! The yarn itself is a wonderful mixture of wool, alpaca and mohair. It knits up both beautifully and easily!

                                This is also a great yarn for felting.
