Variation #3, of 7. Please note the decreases in the selvedges if you are going to try this one out.
The yarn is from a small mill in New Brunswick, Canada which has been in operation since 1857 . It's a rustic single ply and comes in a large variety of solid and heathered colors. I have a particular fondness for this yarn as I was able to tour the mill in 2003, part of a great trip to Newfoundland with my kid.
Yarns of this type are getting increasingly hard to find, as next-to-the-skin softness has become the gold standard for a lot of knitters. B&L Sport is lightly processed (does have VM [vegetable matter, ie, tiny bits of hay]). I like it for colorwork, shawls, and outerwear.
