Review - Bergere de France yarn

I was recently contacted by Bergere de France and asked if I'd like to review some of their new yarn, available now in popular shades for the Spring/Summer season. I'm not an experienced knitter at all, but I thought that I could probably manage something with a bit of help from my Mum, so we decided that we would knit me a summer sweater using the new Estivale yarn. Estivale yarn is a blend of hemp fibres which is blended with sparkly sequins and available in bright summer colours. The yarn that I chose was Estivle abyss, a lovely bright blue. It costs £4.95 for a 50g skein and is 21% hemp, 29% polyester and 50% acrylic. It is labelled as machine washable (but I don't trust myself when it comes to putting knitted garments in the washing machine, so I'll probably hand wash it!)
