I just got this message from WEBS. Anyone ever use this yarn? Is it itchy? It looks itchy. Itchy means good felting tho. Nice colors too. Maybe it'll make a good booga or Oregon tote.

It does have some alpaca in it, so that might offset some of the itch. :thinking:

I got the color card for the bulky and it felt softer than I expected. I ordered the eggplant and plan to use it for an Einstein coat. I am somewhat of a newbie knitter, so keep that in mind.

Oh that looks lovely! I'm looking at making a Booga for my best friend ... I might have to get a few skeins soon!

I remember feeling it when I was there and it didn't feel scratchy to the best of my recollection. (lawyer answer :D )

I haven't used that one but I just finished knitting a sweater with Nashua Creative Focus which has the same content -- 25% alpaca, 75% wool. It looks very similar. I wouldn't say it's next-to-the-skin soft, but it isn't as scratchy as WOTA. I really enjoyed knitting with it, and would definitely try the Berkshire 'cause it's cheaper! :thumbsup:
