I love the mix of fibres in the yarn, the same as Calico. Light, with just a touch of warmth. The Summer Stripes are much much nicer knitted up than in the ball. NOTE: there is nothing to finish the back neck, which I think will stretch with the weight of the waterfall fronts through time. So I made an I-cord (my fist - so easy!) and sewed in along the back neck tucking it in at the shoulder seams. Looks good and will protect the neck.
