Well, I did a sample swatch of the pretty yarn and it really is superwash! It is the weirdest superwash that I have ever dealt with. I knit up a swatch and threw it into the wash with a load of laundry. It didn't change one bit, maybe a slight bit fuzzier, but no felting. The only thing is that I bought this beautiful roving off of ebay, just in case. So, I think that I will have a choice. I'll spin both and see which one I like better. I also got some for myself for my own pretty pretty socks.
