It's Manos Del Uruguay Lace and it is silky soft beyond belief. Really. 'Tis.
I did think I was familiar with the delights of high-end yarns and
not at all somewhat immune to the lure of a special skein of something. But by golly I was entirely and completely incorrect.
Of course there's a clue in the yarn content as listed - 70% Baby Alpaca, 25% Silk, 5% Cashmere. That's gonna be soft you'd think. But still I was stunned into a kind of yarn coma by the reality of its silky softness as I began to swatch with it yesterday.
Geez, and this has been in my stash HOW long? A YEAR? I should have had it on my pillow.
What? Oh yeah, it's for a super-secret-project that I can't even think about in case people near me can read my thoughts. So no peeking.
In the meantime, I'm just sitting over here. Petting yarn.
