Tell me about 100purewool
I've never used it but have heard about it, and checked out their website. Dang, it's cheap so I wonder about the quality. Is it as nice as the MMMMMMMMMMMMMMalabrigo (my most recent favorite yarn)?

I am a huuuuuuge fan of 100purewool. I adore it. It's every bit as soft and wonderful as mmmmmalabrigo, but a little bit finer. I'd say it's a light worsted.

Love, love, love that yarn.

I got mine today! The shipping was high since it comes from Uruguay, but it is lovely to look at and touch. I think it came faster than stuff from Webs which is 2 hours away.

Its nice yarn, but you have to watch the colorways, sometimes you get something that looks NOTHING like what you ordered.
