It's being knitted in "Inca" which is an Australian yarn: 60 wool, 30 alpaca and 10 synthetic. It's what you'd call "chunky" or 12 ply. Love it as it's so damned soft ... just beautiful to knit with, too.

I've just finished knitting the first 48 cms of the back and the lovely diamond feature is about to begin ... can't wait.
