It is a blend of cotton and cashmere and is SOOOOOooooo soft. I had 2 skeins leftover from that project, and I found this pattern to try. This DK weight yarn on size 10 needles resulted in a really loose knit. I was so happy with the result...until I removed the blocking pins. This pattern utilized mostly stockinette stitch, and was supposed to be blocked aggressively to open up the eyelets.
Well, when you do that, especially with a yarn that is not firm and has plenty of drape, you get curling. Nevertheless, I am pleased with the result - mostly because it feels like butter.
This was a quick knit, only took about 4 hours, and I think it'll be a great accessory in the bright blue color. Reminds me of the beautiful color of the ocean at St. Croix (where I wore the beach pullover I made with the rest of the yarn).
This cowl makes me think of summer! Come on warm weather!
