This was my first crate. Wasn't sure what to expect. The color is more a black/Heather grey. Extremely soft with a little weight. Was surprised how heavy it seems, epesically as the project grows. Crochet's up super quick and keeps you very warm in winter. It's a medium weight wool. * I ordered two more skiens with the dd down. Made my project a bit bigger. It was a good surprise.
Such soft yarn, I ordered more! I have enough for a planned cowl, mittens, and hat using a small amount of cream yarn to set off the slate
