Wool and Question

So this is the wool that I will be using. I am not sure about all its properties etc but it looks nice which is mainly why i chose it...lol
I have a question about the swatch? Do we need to knit it using the circular needles or can we just use straight needles that are the same size?

Thanks everyone

would wool work for this item? would it be too hot?

I say use the same needles you will use to knit the garmet. All needles are NOT created equal lol, don't ask me how i know lol

wool would work, but might be warmer than you would like for a summer top. it looks like a loose fitting top, so i think if your gauge isn't spot on, it would still look nice. i think circular knitting tends to be a little more relaxed than straight needles. make sure when you gauge swatch to do the stockinette stitch.
