This is A.L. de Sauveterre Mont Blanc in colorway Coco. I'm knitting a cartridge rib on size 8 needles. I have two skeins and there is going to be more than enough to make a super luxurious scarf for the lucky recipient. I was afraid that 400 yards on such a small gauge (about 6 sts/in) wouldn't be enough to make anything substantial, but using the bigger needles and the great stitch pattern really stretched the yarn. And I don't know if you can tell from my blurry photo, but it's not a weird hole-y, lace-y scarf. It's lofty and squishy and soft.
I adore Axelle so much! Not only is she a lovely person, but this is, by far, my favorite yarn ever.
