This is wonderfully soft wool that knits up beautifully in a chunky stockinette sweater for my daughter. She loves the bright Herdywool color ways. We first discovered Herdywool on a trip to England last summer, finding it in a National Trust shop in the Lake District. When I went to knit it up after we returned home, we decided we needed more of it, in more colors, to make the garment my daughter wanted. Thank goodness I found Yarn Cafe and that they ship overseas!
