granny stripe blanket.
Do any wool lovers know of another beautiful, soft 8ply merino wool that is brightly dyed, ultrafine and doesn't cost up to $12 per ball?! If so, I would love to know, otherwise I will be spending my children's education funds on a rather costly wool habit!! Or else, using up my scratchier wool and spending the children's education funds on a rather costly skincare regime!!
PS The granny square in the foreground is the gentle granny! The blue in the centre is cotton and the pink is a bamboo cotton mix - neither of which affected my hands, but I don't think they were cheap either!
