It is really gorgeous, isn't it!?! I can't wait to order some and actually feel it!
I'm not concerned about the washability of the yarn -- I have several articles of 100% viscose clothing that I machine wash on the gentle cycle all the time. Plus, as Ingrid mentioned, how often will a clapotis be washed, anyway?!?
I think I'm leaning towards the blues. If it were for me, I'd get the green, too, Jenelle, but I know not everyone is a green person. The blues seem more universal, to me.
I'll let you all know how it goes.
