My Thoughts: I've been told about the amazing virtues of Peace Fleece for years and this was my first time working with it. It's hearty and wooly and warm. I was under the impression that it was going to be scratchy, and while I can feel a few prickles if I press it to my neck, it's softer than I thought it would be, not to mention making a gorgeous tweedy fabric.
What I might design with it: I'd love a heavy cardigan in this for mid-winter warmth.
Where you can get some: You can buy it on the Peace Fleece website as well as at some LYS's. I recommend Tolt Yarn & Wool!
