Two colors of yummy angora-blend yarn, whose fuzziness helps obscure any unevenness in your early attempts to produce a smooth stockinette stitch fabric. No neck shaping - back and front of the garmet are identical. Sally notes this straight-across neckline may not be flattering on someone with a short neck, or someone with sloping shoulders (although shoulder pads could be added to remedy this latter problem).
