Arrived today from Scotland, this is Donnegal Silk Tweed yarn in Cobalt from the New Lanark yarn mill that Britisher posted about some time ago. It's 90% wool, 10 % silk, is soft and beautifully tweedy. This is their aran weight. It comes in 100 gram (3.75 oz) balls at GBP 2.95 per ball. At today's exchange rate this is $4.48. With shipping from Scotland to Maine this works out to $6.27 per ball- less than I would pay at my lys for a yarn of similar quality. This yarn is destined to become a sweater once I decide on a design and figure out if I am serious about changing my eating habits *groan*. Thanks, Britisher, for the tip.
