    I have been admiring your website – you are very talented and must be so patient to create such lovely work. I hope you can answer a question for me. I bought a navy blue wool-angora blend throw today and it looks like little white hairs (cat hairs?) are all through it. Is this a natural effect of this blend or did I purchase a used product that a cat or dog has been sleeping on? Do you know if this is characteristic of this blend? Thanks – Lois

    You’ve been busy! I like your socks, especially the purple ones. I have one skein of Quatro and I never thought of making socks with it. Great idea!
