Before I attended my first fiber show and discovered roving and spinning, I searched second hand shops for beautiful sweaters and harvested the yarn for just a few dollars. This is one my of favorite finds. I love the blue color and the texture is very soft. When I first felt the sweater I thought it was a very soft cotton and then read the label cashmere and silk oh-la-la. Here are a few pics. I haven't crocheted anything from the yarn because I want to get much better at crocheting before I use it. The size small sweater yielded eight cakes of yarn from the winder enough for something lovely to wear.
