Lana Gatto VIP is a wool/cashmere blend at a fantastic price. VIP has the sturdiness of wool with the softness of cashmere. This yarn will make shawls and garments with a beautiful drape and feel. Made in Italy.
I got the red which was more of a clown red than a deep red, so I did have to overdye it with tea but that worked wonderfully. This yarn is lovely and squishy and soft and feels whisper light. I made a shawl of it that feels so light and soft but is nicely warm - it's pretty fantastic. The one difficult thing about this yarn is that it is so stretchy - that made it a tad bit difficult for me to knit with and make my st st look even. That being said, I would still totally use this again as the way it feels makes it delightful to knit with (and makes the finished product lovely, too).

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
