It never fails to amaze me how strong these thread weight merino yarns are. I unraveled these sweaters directly from the disassembled pieces onto the swift. Typically I have to pull out a few yards, then wind the swift in a two step process, but these came apart very smoothly with minimal tension. I just attached the end, and wound away. I suppose them being in great condition helped somewhat.
The Ann Taylor was a short sleeved crew neck number in a country blue. The other was a long sleeved cardigan by David Jones Plus, the first true black I've found thus far (stoked about that). Both are 100% merino wool, and will undoubtedly be quadrupled for the Reflect Series.
