900 yrds worsted weight Soft English Leicester yarn.

This is Houdini! He can be seen onthe meet the animals page. He makes great outer garments due to the tad lanolin left in his fleece so it is naturally water repellant.  If the natural element is not your "thing", you can wash it out as you would a fine sweater. I leave it in when I can because it is such a plus, and you can't add it after it is gone. Houdini is soft for mitts, leg warmers, scarfs, hats, and embellishing sweaters. I chose "long draw", type of spinning on my Spinolution Echo to maximize his softness. The diameter is very consistent soft worsted weight throughout the 4 skeins.
