A great wool yarn for the price! The colour (grape) is a pretty dark purple with flecks of red and touches of blue and green, it is not as bright as in the photo. I'm knitting the Audrey coat, (free on Ravelry), a bulky oversized sweater coat and I'm really liking the stitch definition I'm getting...plus it's actually pretty light ( mind you I only about halfway done)!
I used this yarn for a 'Capo' - cross between a cape and a poncho. I'd never used B&L before, and I am now a huge fan!! I LOVE the roughness, as it is being used for an outer garment. For such a big yarn, it is SO light! I thought the finished product would be heavy and pull down, but it does not. I can't wait to use the rest of this in a vest. The yarn is very consistent, no knots, no thick and thin spots, it's just beautiful! Briggs and Little, you have a new best friend!!
