100% Pure Wool
I swatched the yarn from Uruguay - I'm getting 4.5 stitches/inch and 6.5 rows/inch on size 6 needles. It is very nice to knit with but the dye does come off a tad on your hands. Like Manos, there is no true solid. This is black which I intend on mixing with another multi-color from the same vendor. Now if I can only find the book with the patterns in it I'll be a very happy knitter, since I ordered enough to make four sweaters.
