See...I'm not the only one who thinks it feels a bit much like human hair. I know I'm weird, but I know I am not completely out there, at least not all of the time. I think I may be weird in that I prefer plyed wools to single ply. I do too much knitting while doing other things (reading on the computer, watching TV, reading books, etc.) that I tend to split stitches too easily with single ply stuff and SWS especially. But, it is among the nicest stuff at the craft stores. It is good to see more variety and more choices.
