I bought this yarn in Italy and have made a scarf with it. It is relatively easy to work with although i foung it necessary to push the long shags of yarn to one side. It creates a very shaggy loof. It is perhaps better for small item due to the plush feel of the finished garment.

I bought this yarn at a sheep and wool festival at one of the vendors. I discovered it makes a wonder flower pattern when you use the whisps in a center position in a circular pattern. Add a stamin in the center with some leaves ...wonderful embellishment
