I am going to knit a wedding shawl for my granddaughter an I am stumped about which yarn to use. It is to be lace knitted in sock weight on size 4 US needles. I want it to be wool or a combo wool silk,something that will block really well. I don't want anything fuzzy or with a distinct halo. Maybe I can't find what I want because there are too many choices (like the grocery store). I appreciate any suggestions. Sandy
A yarn like Sundara Fingering Silky Merino would be lovely -- I've worked with it several times. It's 50/50 silk and merino. She doesn't have it in stock all the time, but I'm sure there's another yarn base out there that's similar.
