At least she will be when this hank of purpleness is knit up. This is the yarn I got at Stitches West for my Mom's Provincial Waistcoat.
It is Brooks Farm's Mas Acero, a mix of wool, silk and viscose. It has both bluey purples and reddy purples and is nice and soft.When I wound the first skein yesterday, leaves actually fell out of it. Fresh from the fields :-)
