I purchased Cat Bordhi's pattern for the Anemone Hat and the suggested yarn was Shepherd Worsted - Cat says she doesn't always find the absolute perfect yarn for a project but Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted was the absolute best for this hat. I agree completely! This yarn is a pleasure to knit, wear, and care is easy. It isn't pilling, retains shape throughout wearing or laundering, and stays squishy soft. Great stuff! You won't be sorry if you choose to give this a try.
That's all you need to know - this yarn is just YUM! Squishy soft to knit but has great stitch definition, no splits, no tangles, only smooth and pleasant knitting. And then you block it...purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
This is not my first Breathless, certainly not my last, and this time I bought two :-
I enjoyed working with this yarn so much the first time that I bought more to make something for myself - first item was a gift. Feels wonderful in your hands, knits up fast and easy, and the capelet I made from the first batch only needed a steam blocking to look great. My only criticism was the yardage may have been a bit shorter than labeled, but then again the pattern may have required a bit more than recommended - or the knitter was off gauge by half a stitch LOL!!
