^I added in the notes section of the order form that my preference is "muff," otherwise, "laghey" is fine
I really do not think "laghey" has that much red. A good contrast to the darker gray. I considered all the other donegals closely and much prefer a more subtle color with interesting contrast (strands of orange and red in the laghey).
Everything else is very bland IMO unless you are looking for a particular hard color like sand, light gray, red, blue, etc. I personally would not be able to get as much wear out of the "malin" color, and despite "muff" being almost black, I consider the charcoal with twists of purple/violet enough of a contrast and more subdue.
"Laghey" is pretty traditional blend of colors if I am not mistaken for this type of knit. I have seen it elsewhere before. I was highly considering the blue or red donegals but the contrast is too much for me, and I rather wear a blue jacket than a knit cardigan.
