Just received it, and haven't had a chance to knit with it yet.....but the color is even prettier in person!! A very vibrant forest green hue, rich colors....and nice and smooshy!! I might make a large cowl that can go over my shoulders in breezy fall/wnter weather?! (After buying it to make her a shawl.....I'm secretly kinda glad that it Isn't the colors my aunt actually wears right now.....So, I get to keep it!!)
