I just made the Ballet Tee from Loop de Loop using this yarn doubled. On a size 15 needle, the whole thing (top down raglan) took 4 hours. The yarn is delightful. . . lightweight but springy. Good memory and drape.

Great yarn! Lovely drape, easy to work with and the wool gives is some spring, so it doesn't lose its shape, yet still lightweight. Great stitch definition and works up quickly. Color migrations can be taken care of with a vinegar rinse the first time you wash it (which I recommend esp. for the brighter colors).

My favorite cotton yarn. Even though it says it's not machine washable, I've put it in the washer and dryer on gentle and it still looks great. Treat initially with vinegar, so colors don't run.
