I got this yarn at Webs, the huge tremendous yarn store in Northampton, Mass. After I saw the knitted sample of this yarn I knew I had to try it. It's a very interesting pleasure to knit up this particular pattern. There are 10 stitches in each row. I'm not sure I'd enjoy trying to make a different fabric with it. I saw a boa made from the same yarn at Webs and it looked like a mess. This feels like rabbit fur.
