Where I got it: Purl Soho sent me a skein after I saw it in their newsletter & requested one for this review.

Blocked Gauge I got: 24 sts/36 rows = 4"/10 cm
My Thoughts: This knit up really beautifully with a classic tweedy wool look & fabric that's quite soft & light. I'd like to see it at a snugger gauge, but I think this would be great fabric for an accessory. I also feel like this would be a really good choice for lace shawls, particularly if you love the look of classic Shetland yarns, but don't feel like they're soft enough for neckwear
What I might design with it: I'm thinking a basic cardigan or maybe an all-over lace pullover. Or a big square lace shawl... So many ideas on this one!
