Superwash wool for a sweater
I'm having a devil of a time deciding which superwash wool I should use for a sweater for myself. Do ya'll have any suggestions or hints?

I'm not very familiar with the vast superwash wool market out there, but I have had great success with hats, mittens, scarves, etc made from Lamb's Pride Superwash. They have some great colors, especially some nice heathered colors.

I made a sweater with Dalegarn Falk--it's a dk weight. I loved knitting with it and I have washed in in the washer and just laid it flat to dry--looks great.
