How soft is the natural color wool? Appropriate for a sweater or is it rougher than that?

Reply to kitkat: I'm not quite sure about this pink one. But if you can brief me on know-how, maybe I can do a felting test for you.

Reply to Carol_OH: The 100% Wool in Gray, Red or the Natural color will knit up to 4st per inch. You can also use a double strand of the Wool Mohair blend.

Reply to Kemp: The natural color wool is not a very soft wool, I will not use it for a next-to-skin sweater but a friend of mine knitted up a vest after we dyed this wool in koolaid and it turned out great.

Hope these helps.

The mohair looks gorgeous - don't suppose you'd post to the UK, MaryAnn?
