This is Noro's aran-weight yarn that is primarily wool but with a good dose of alpaca for warmth and fuzzy coziness, plus silk for strength and sheen. It's a beautiful yarn in natural shades with an unfinished but in no way rustic surface texture. This is great for a variety of practical and luxurious accessories, hats, mitts, scarves, even shawls and vests.
