Anyway, on the same theme I also bought the Peria Kid Mohair which I think will crochet up nicely on a fine hook.
At the same time I dug deep and bought some Alchemy Silken Straw in Teal Tide (it says it all!!) which I'm going to use on my cordette bags. The handle requires short bulky chains to join handle to bag and I want to cover the rings in something close to raffia but more stylish. I think this fits the bill. As with all Alchemy yarns the colours in Silken Straw are stunning. Take a peek.
