Super Lamb

It's been awhile since I've seen JaggerSpun yarns in person, but they have been around for a long time. The mill in Maine was established in the 1880s, and they have been producing high-quality, beautiful yarns ever since. Their website has some great information about the history of the company and brief but sweet factory tour, if you are interested in that sort of thing. You know I am.
We are welcoming Super Lamb, a superwash DK, into the shop this spring. Each of these skeins is 124 yards of squishy merino wool. Sally used three of the periwinkle blue to make the Elyse Cowl from Quince & Co. It's a long and lean cowl that looks great doubled up.
There is something about this yarn that we can't quite describe. It has a heft to it, but it's not exactly heavy. It has a deep color, but it's not too bright. It has a nice matte finish, but it's still vibrant. I don't know what to say. Pop in and have a look will you? Let me know what words you would use to describe it.
