I didn't say anything about the yarn, etc. I linked the post to my Ravelry notes, which gives all the details. I thought if anyone was interested in the nitty-gritty, they'd click over.
But anyhoo, no worries! This is the yarn I used. It's an Irish Wool. Not real scratchy, but not soft either. I can wear it next to my skin just fine. The color is Blue Stone.
