opinions on Lorna's Laces Lion & Lamb?
I am considering the purchase of LL Lion & Lamb, and was wondering if anyone had opinions on it:
1. Does it hold up to (light) wear?
2. Is it, generally speaking, worth the money?
3. Do you know of any less expensive alternatives which are comparable? I like the shine. Is it soft? Unfortunately, I can't find it in my LYS.

I do believe you get what you pay for, so if this yarn is worth it, I'd like to know that too. I love the colorways and the gauge looks to be spot on for the scarf I have in mind.

I am not asking anyone to do research for me, just wondering if you've worked with it and are willing to share your experience

I haven't used LL Lion & Lamb yet, but I'd love to. Unfortunately, it's a little too expensive for my (well, my husband's) taste. About all he'll let me do it pet it while I'm shopping.

One of the ladies at my LYS suggested Classic Elite Miracle as an alternative. It's a tencel-alpaca blend and very soft; it's sheen is similar to Lion & Lamb's, and runs about $9/skein. However, I'm not sure if it has variegated colorways like L&L; my LYS only had solids.

I'm interested in this as well. I'm considering doing the Bombshell sweater from Big Girl Knits, and it was done in Lion & Lamb -- but I can't justify a $300 sweater!!!
