Has anyone used Mission Falls wool and cotton yarn?
I bought 2 skeins of the 1824 wool... and was impressed with its softness and price.
Let me know what you think. Not sure what I am going to do with the two skeins I bought, but I might have to buy more to make something good!

They are both very nice and quite popular. :)
I :heart: the cotton! I've never experienced the wool.

What have you made with the cotton?

I've only groped the cotton, but the wool is what I now use for making DHs socks. WW *and* superwash... just what I needed!
Ooh, that's good to know. I'm looking at making the "Gathering Intentions" sweater from Inspired Cable Knits (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/itemid_30725/books_display.aspx#) and it calls for 1824 Wool, but I wasn't sure if I should get that or not.
Why I'd really need a 100% wool sweater in Houston I'm not sure, but it's just such a cool sweater!

I've groped them too and love they way they feel but I've never had the opportunity to actually knit with them...
