International cooperation yarn

Today I learned about Peace Fleece, a company "committed to helping historic enemies cooperate and prosper through trade". They used to buy wool from the Soviet Union, and now buy wool from various former Communist countries and blend it with American wool. Also, they sell blends of Israeli and Palestinian wools. The colors are absolutely gorgeous in the pictures, and I immediately ordered a skein in Georgia Rose.

So beautiful and elegant... I envision a jacket (since the yarn is supposed to be indestructible), or some other type of outerwear (are there any other types of knitted outerwear?).
