Comments: I found this yarn difficult to work with. Some parts were bulky, other parts like sewing thread. I'm told by people who spin that it is difficult to make such yarn, but my first attempt at spinning yielded something similar. Perhaps I should knit this cowl out of my own handspun... Anyway, I love the finished product, and I am probably going to make another in a semi-solid black, grey, or green.
