This German made yarn consisted of 50% Cotton and 50% Nylon. It was super soft and had a lovely hand feel. With very, very long lengths of colour before the next one, the striping effect was subtle between colour changes and gave way to stripes.

The day I decided to take the photo outside it was over 30deg Celcius, so it was a bit hard to imagine needing to wear it. :)
A simple, small shawl which nicely sits over the shoulders for those cool evenings or it can be wrapped and tied around the neck for tucking into a coat.
