Nice bag I am sure it will be Fabulous once you do your I-cord,which you can see in Amy's video in basic techniques in knitting help. Mayebe I should rethink making my Palindrome set from this yarn then???????? But of troy scarf look so soft. Excuse me for my ramblings but this is the first project I am going to be doing that I am using natural fibers.

I'm planning on making a couple more bags but I have no clue about I cord so it's still a stringless open bag!!!

it is a bit fuzzy/hairy.. (and that could bother some) its also very warm..

its loosely spun, and mostly wool and it traps warmth.. my hat and scarf are done in a loose open deeply textured stitch, and they are oven like!

I think you should give it a try on the scarf...It will look so pretty...the colors are amazing...I find it very soft and nice to work with...I didn't have much problems with splitting either... I made myself a Danica last year from the natural color ways and wore it all the time... I had so many stop me and say hey where did you get that?

Here is my danica...looks like brendajos just different color which I want to do another in her colorway...

ohh I also made the asminah's hat too...I think its Geranium...

It's very fuzzy even when felted, but the colors are so pretty!

I couldn't wear it next to my skin, but I'm sensitive to a lot of wools that even ones that others say are soft.

I've used it for several hat projects and even for little flowers. It's never been splitty for me. My favorite part is that after a year of hat use - - no pilling! That's a huge plus for me!

Definitely enablers. I am going to bite the bullet and buy some. all I have to do is find an online store that has it that ships to the UK.

I have sensitive skin as well but If i knit it and it doesn't work for me i'll just have to find someone to give it to because the colors I want I know my DH would not wear,

Beautiful work Dustinac love the Scarf.

It is rather fuzzy ... I've thought about doing another bag of a different style and felting it .. I've seen photos of it done in felted stuff and it looks quite nice ... I have a Nori bag pattern that I'd like to make and also one by I think it's Fibre Trends with a sheep on the side .. I missed the class for it ... I've never felted but anything that covers a multitude of sins is something I'm willing to try. Stuff without gauge is my favorite.
If you are in the UK as a friend of mine is, she had someone on this side purchase the yarn and send it by post. But there must be some shops who ship overseas. Maybe the Patons site itself.

I bought 2 skeins of Natural Earth tonight.
bajan, it seems that herrschners and marymaxim both ship internationally, but their terms seem kind of crappy. I'd still look into it if I were you. I'll look around some more for you, too.
