Well, I was using Patons pure wool for my neice's poncho and I had to rip the whole thing out. I had about 10 inches done. I kept smelling something funny, and realized the other day that it was the wool yarn! It smelled just like sheep. Obviously, the company didn't clean it well enough at all. I was able to return both skeins (I bought them at AC Moore) and then went to my LYS to buy something else. I got this gorgeous yarn called Princess (made by Classic Elite),and it is heavenly to work with! It is merino wool, cashmere, and angora. It was a little expensive (10.00 per skein-I needed three) but I would have spent that on her anyway for a gift, so I figure this way, I get the benefit of working with such a wonderful yarn. I got a light grey because I figure she can wear it with a pair of black pants and maybe a black turtleneck underneath. I think she is really going to like this!
