This has become my "go to" yarn. I've used it for everything from fair isle mittens, to hats, scarves, and sweaters. It is beautifully soft, with a lovely halo. The weight is more like a DK than worsted and seems to work best for me when using size 4.5mm needles. Currently working on a cardigan for me and I'm loving it. It's not just about the finished garment, but the joy of knitting each stitch.

Sheds really badly

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

I made gloves...Read complete review

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

I made gloves with this and for real, they look like I've been petting a heavily shedding cat. The more I wear them, the worse it gets.

I wouldn't buy it again. It's too bad when you really love the look and feel of a yarn only to have your fo look ratty at the end.

          I used this yarn for the Tracy Shawl from Wendy Knits Lace. It has a good drape, although it does not flow. I see it best as a sweater, hat, or blanket/afghan.

              Had lovely results on fairisle/icelandic type colorwork. This is my favorite yarn currently. For an alpaca blend with generous yardage it is a good value yarn.
