For whatever reason, I really feel like I want a lace shawl to have a touch of silk in it. Myabe it's the little gleam. I'd love something that's semi solid, but I'll save a non "first shawl" for that, because it usually takes a little more money to get EVERYTHING you want in a yarn. I'm still looking for something that will fit the bill, and I'll most likely get it at Elann. Peruvian baby silk. I ordered a skein to do some test swatches on while I finish my other projects. We'll see.
I know the yarn is a smaller gauge than recommended, but I also sooorrttaaaaa want a smaller shawl, so I'll get it, see what happens when I do a swatch on smaller needles with this yarn and see how I feel about it. I did a lace swatch on some sport weight yarn and I definitely like the look of something more delicate a little better. Personal preference though, I think (I hope!).
