Absolutely helpless. I don`t like angora by itself, but I love merino. Throw a bit of angora in it, I can`t look away.
Plus, I have Miss Tactile DGD. I have knitted a similar blend for her. She loved the way it felt, and immediately squished it in her hands. Then tried it on. In Phoenix. In July. She appreciates!

I had to order enough for a winter accessory wardrobe for DGD-hats and mittens. I just found her a pale pink ski jacket, so I am doing pink, linen and berry.

sounds wonderful for her...i too love the way this feels but unfortunately the angora makes my eyes water and my face itch and my nose run and my hands itch...i raveled it and too many other commenters had similar experiences (if they were sensitive to the angora) for me to risk it. Just leaves more for everyone else right :) Enjoy for me!

I know from knitting ther Angora yarns that the flying fibers make me sneeze and makes my eyes run. I can wear it fine. Just someone else has to knit it. hahaha

Likewise defenseless. I told myself if there was any left by the time I got home I would get it...

Just ordered the last of one Berry lot and some clover. I have nieces that will be wanting new scarves and such, too. It`s going to be so soft!

Sounds perfect!

There are only 3 colors right now (must have missed all the good ones) and nothing jumps out at me. Anyways, everything itches right now and I can`t stand the thought of being near yarn right now.

I`m saved by having a sneaking suspicion that I`m allergic to Angora. I`ll have to knit up another swatch of my Reynolds Devotion (angora/nylon) to confirm!

Hey! Angora irritates me too. I`m a sucker for mohair.
