When I was in Cape Breton, I stopped in at Baadeck Yarns, a lovely little shop in Baddeck. I was on the look-out for some angora blend yarn, and they did have some, although in a limited colour range. I settled on this variegated yarn with mixed feelings about the colours, but as I knit with it, I started to like it more and more. I have a beige jacket so I think it will work fine with that. The yarn is very light and soft - delightful to wear especially on the hands.
