green IS so cool!

This lovely yarn as purchased is very stiff and feels as if it is coated. I wound it from its ball and formed a hank from it, then washed it with hair conditioner. When dry, re-wound it into a center-pull ball and it is soft and nice to knit. The color transitions are amazing! So far the cuff of my new socks flows from khaki green to black to bright green. I can't wait to get to turquoise from the same ball!
