Got some of this at Rhinebeck for a sweater that's coming together beautifully. The yarn is soft to the touch, with nice colors with subtle variations. Needed more and Cornwall got it to me so quickly I didn't even need to set the project aside.
Soft and springy and gives great definition to cablework. Very resilient (and forgiving of re-knits!) Very soft hand but firm texture. A delight to knit - I can't wait to wear my sweater. Love its traceability too!
