About your yarn choice Using a superwash, alpaca blend, or a non-wool yarn will give you a drapier/dressier finished project. A more rustic wool will give a project with more body/warmth. You want something that feels nice next to your skin. Any sort of colorway will work fine for this one – variegated, solid, semi-solid, speckled, ombré, you-name-it!
