Another fast raglan using yarn bought in Tokyo. This is Diakeito yarn called Diaange and it took 9 -40 gram balls. It's 90% wool and perhaps something like alpaca or whatever. It's very light to wear but also warm. I paid $60 two years ago for the yarn with one ball remaining. My first impression of the yarn was not good as I could see a core with yarns coming from that but I think it was only when the red colors were being used. After a while I decided I liked it anyway but I wouldn't buy it again.
The yarn works up nicely as a raglan with self striping. I'm standing in my new kitchen.
