I made the Tucked Pullover sweater designed by Quenna Lee and published in Knit Wear (fall/winter2013) with Coffee Bean Brown Silky Wool. It was really fun to work with and I absolutely love my finished sweater. It's lightweight but nice and warm and it layers well over blouses and tops. I was afraid I didn't have enough yarn to make the sleeves as long as I wanted, but found it easy to stretch them out during blocking. I was so impressed that I bought more in two different colors to make more sweaters. Can't wait to get started on them.

I purchased a ball of this at my LYS to swatch before ordering. Glad I did. It's classified as a DK, and it looks like about a DK -- until you knit it up. It's very lightweight, with a loose twist, so it knits up more as a fingering. This yarn would be ideal for a floaty, lacy scarf, but I wouldn't recommend it for a cozy sweater. That said, it's pretty, has a good hand, and the texture is just the teeniest bit pebbly. It knits up very evenly.

          Instead of the original pattern I choose, I found another other even better, but that meant that I needed more of exactly the same wool. And that it what you offered me!! So it is no longer dangerous to change your mind because Webbs is behind you.

                    This yarn is a stable in my household especially for woven gifts each year at Christmas. It weaves wonderfully on both a rigid heddle or floor loom. I can achieve different textures depending on which I use and how hard/soft I beat. After weaving, it fulls beautifully with just a short, typical spin in the dryer. I use a 10-dent reed. It turns out so soft after that process, wonderful worn next to the skin. It comes in a wide range of colors so you can satisfy the desires of each recipient. I have to buy tons of this each year to make the requested gifts.
