How does it wear? Filatura di Crosa Ramie

Garment:  Shell

Fibre: 70% wool/30% Ramie

Date completed: February 2004


Tension: knitted a bit tighter than the recommended tension as I used a double strand for a 10ply pattern.

Stitch: Twisted stocking stitch.

Washing: Handwashed, rolled in towels and dried flat.

Worn: Mainly during summer and spring



This shell has held its shape and colour very well.   It became softer when first washed.   It has shown a small amount of pilling but still looks good.  Not bad for a garment that cost me about $8.00.
