I just ordered some of this, as I feel it is time for me to move away from acrylic and cotton yarns and try something more luxurious. I am thinking of making a scarf and matching hat for my husband with this yarn (or maybe a hat for me). Do you think it is good for a winter hat, or a man's scarf? It has alapaca, silk, and wool I believe.
Is there anything I need to know about this yarn before choosing patterns? I am considering the Irish Hiking Scarf and a simple rolled brim hat (is that too feminine?). I am a little nervous about working with these fibers, but with knit picks prices I am willing to take the leap to yummier yarns.
