Comments: Normally, I'm really not a fan of yarns with as much acrylic in them as this one, but somehow, I can't not like this Shetland Chunky yarn. Ages ago I knit a sweater for my brother using this (in dark grey, not this colour), and as far as I know he still has it and its in decent shape, considering. To be fair, I did steam swatch a little more than is probably good for the acrylic, but look how nicely it sits now! :)
