Louisa Harding Amitola Grande yarn is a dream to work with.  This single ply yarn has a subtle self-striping that is very pretty.  One note:  it would be best to use a cable cast-on when knitting or a foundational single crochet when crocheting.  Because the yarn is single spun this will keep the yarn from lossing strength and breaking.
