Reyna Shawl off the needles

Finally finished this shawl that towards the end really gave me big problems which ended up making this shawl to be a month late. Never mind, It’s done and I love it. I bought the yarn in Dublin this year in February. It’s Hedgehog Fibres Sock and the colourway is Spell. I love the colour of this yarn but I don’t like the yarn. It’s splitting a lot and it’s very squeaky. It feels like you are knitting with cotton and not wool, and it is 90% Merino and 10% Nylon. And when I was soaking it for the blocking it bled like mad. 🙁 So I will not buy any more of this yarn and I have two other colours in my stash of this one, so I will use them but not buy any new ones.

The place to go to buy pure, natural wool from the UK, for knitting or weaving, along with blankets, throws, shawls, cushions and scarves

This is a yarn that I’m interested to try out and have seen it being talked about and used on some of the podcasts that I’m following. I also think that the prices are good.
