Yarns for Hourglass Sweater

Here is the photo of my yarns that I used for Hourglass Sweater.

The brown one is Pura Lana Ecologica (100% ecologic wool, 50g/175m, color #: 635) and I probably used 6 balls. The recommended gauge is 24 sts/30 rows in 10x10 cm with 3.5-4 needles.. It is soft, not itchy, very nice yarn, and I had this for long, long time.

The pale blue one is Filatura di Crosa Kid Mohair (80% Mohair Kid, 20% Nylon, 25g/268yds, color #: 342) and I used about 3 balls. It gave depth in the sweater.

Overall, I am very much satisfied with this project. I would love to challenge it with different yarns some day.
