Venus (Purewool Merino)

It's been a big week for Jolly Jumbuck. Venus arrived last week and I've only had the chance to play with it. It's gorgeous wool in the handy worsted weight so that you can knit your American patterns calling for worsted wool (eg. Picky Pants) without doing conversions. Spun from the finest Spanish Merino wool and imported from Uruguay, this wool is a single-ply and seriously soft. Items made from this do pill quite a bit in the first few washes but I think the extra care is worth the pattable softness.

My short/long list of favourite wools is growing at an alarming rate! ... :P
