Linen wool blend

I can't actually remember why I bought this from Ice, I suspect it was on serious sale. And it didn't look at all attractive on the website, or even in the ball, but it wove up just beautifully.

It is very fine, so I set it reasonably close, and it turned out light and soft, but still with a bit of heft. The little random flecks are nice, and give it a bit of interest. It is 60% wool, 25% viscose, 12% linen and 3% polyester. It is quite likely that the coloured flecks are the polyester.

It was very soothing just to make something from all one type of wool, and see how it weaves up on its own. I am not sure what else I would put it with? Something soft, definitely. I still have four balls left, so plenty of room for experimentation.
