I probably over paid for this cliche 80s nightmare, but its quite large, and I'm hoping it will yield quite a bit. Its mohair / wool blend in a sort of light grey and silver in worsted weight. I paid $10, probably pretty close to retail for the yarn. There was another one I liked better and it was only $5 but I chose this one. I.may go back tomorrow and see if I can find that sweater. It would have made a great pair of socks! It was wool rayon silk blend in a gorgeous color..... I'm now having buyers remorse. I should have purchased the other one!
