The yardage is good at 425m/100g, and it knits on 2.25 to 3mm needles. machine or hand wash cool, lay flat to dry. The price aint bad either at a very reasonable $21.97 per skein.

Get it while it lasts! Uruguay isn't a busy international shipping destination, so it takes a while to get inventory onto a boat and out of the country.
