What yarn am I using?

Robin asked what yarn I am making my Ariann out of. It is the same as Bonne's - Selkirk by Ram Wools. It is a sturdy, rustic (gently processed) yarn that softens beautifully when washed. A little bit hard on the hands while knitting, but I think the finished results are worth it.
What is everyone else using?

I love the color of Selkirk you're using. I wet blocked mine - it gets really soft afterwards -

Thanks for letting me know - I washed my Brooks Farm Riata swatch tonight and I think it will work just fine now. It was soft before washing, but not drapey at all, kind of thick and stiff, but now it is a lot more drapey.

We'll see for sure when it dries - I was hoping this would be a stash-busting project so hopefully it works!

I'm using the Plymouth Galway in a green/brown/black heather. It is really working up nicely.

Hi Risa! I'm so happy to hear you're using the Galway - I was wondering if it would work OK. This weekend I want to do a WPI (wraps per inch) ruler like I did for another design (CeCe).

It was very enlightening to see you the yarns stacked up - Galway is definitely in the mix.
