We don't normally bring in heavier yarns but this one is so lovely, both in looks and feel, plus we were offered it at a nice discount -- 15% off --- which (of course) we are passing on.
From Noro, this is a lovely long color run yarn of 70% wool/ 30% silk and with 197 yards/ 100g.
This colorway is named Akoya Haze and is gentle pastels, running on a beige background -- pinks and aqua and lilac and yellow....
Really lovely and soft to the hand.
I used just a bit more than one skein* to make this strikingly weird hat called Spirale (pattern by Anne of Alfa Knits) -- I feel like smiling every time I wear it.
* Note on yardage for the hat: I only needed to go into the second skein for the i-cord bind-off so you might be fine with one or with a small quantity of another color/yarn for the end.
