I realize Angora and Merino are not suited for summer knits. On the other hand why not? No I won’t be wearing it out about in the blazing sun or humidity. The nights here though are cool and my thinking is this if I go up a size in needle but down a size in measurements I will have an open boxy Devon with the flare of Candy. Only way to really see is to swatch it right? If it’s a fail well then I will find some laceweight colored silk or cotton blends that can still give me those Suess like stripes!
