"The measure will still have to be approved by the House, which is far from certain." At least that's something to be hopeful about.

I heard about this via knitting blogs, which are talking about Qiviut- the insulating down of the muskox. Qiviut is apparently 8 times warmer than wool (by weight) and a crapload more expensive as well. Still... I'd like to try it out. So if anyone wants to spend $60.00 to buy me one ball, I'd thank you but would probably also end up saying, "You know this was an incredible waste of money, right? One ball? Psshht, I can't even make a scarf with that."
