Yarn: 70% wool / 30% angora yarn from a local farm. Yarn was about dk-weight, single ply. I used nearly all 600 yards.
Needles: US 8
This was an easy, relaxing project once I had the pattern memorized. The dk yarn and larger needles made this project grow pretty fast. My only issue is that it probably wasn't the best idea to use angora yarn for a shawl. If you wear a dark shirt, throw on this shawl, then take it off... you're going to have many strands of rabbit fur left on your shirt.
Still, this shawl is light as air and oh-so-soft.
