I have been getting lovely new yarn in the mail lately! New Zealand Woolpak scored from Chic Knits studio stashout. Rustic looking, but not too scratchy, the 8 ply has over 500 yards in each skein, making it possible to knit a small sized garment in just 2 skeins.
Stonehedge Worsted to make a sweater. The color is "beaches", which is much more heathered and gray than many of the pictures would lead you to believe (many of the pictures look more tan than gray). If you haven't felt Stonehedge before, you will probably be surprised. It is much softer than expected. it feels like a merino superwash. This yarn is probably one of the best kept secrets for a basic sweater yarn. Super soft. Great stitch definition. with crisp, clear stitches- perfect for cable heavy sweaters.
I haven't decided if it will have cables or not (but it seems a shame not to!), but I am hoping the sweater will compliment my current everyday sweater.
