    This is great for bodies. I think they should market a coordinating yarn that has somewhat shorter color changes to do the sleeves with. I found the color changes too long for sleeves. I love the resulting sweater, it gets loads of compliments but I broke the yarn a lot for the sleeves to slip in other parts of the skeins and also some solid colors of Harrisville Shetland. I personally love wool and don't mind wearing a turtleneck under scratchier wool. This yarn might soften up however, I haven't washed it yet.

    I bought this yarn because of the color to knit socks. I was surprised at the coarse texture but not put off. I soon discovered that it has a very long color repeat which may be an advantage for larger objects but does not work a well for samller items like socks. I ended up with one green sock and one purple sock due to the repeat length. While I'm not bothered by this, you may be if you prefer symmetry.

    My biggest complaint came when I ran into a knot. While trying to find a similar color in the transition to continue, I disovered that the transition beyond the knot was running in the opposite direction. I consequently had to begin unwinding the ball from the opposite end to find a color match and get the colors running in the correct direction. This lack of care on the part of the manufacturer is annoying and cost this yarn one star. It is why I called the yarn "user unfriendly".

          the colors in this yarn are awesome; it is very tiny so it's kind of hard to knit with unless you are great at knitting with small yarn. Project of mine is going slow but end result will be great. Haven't finished it yet so I don't know if it will be soft after blocking; It is a little scratchy right now.

            Comments about Kauni Effekt:

            I originally bought this yarn to make a second Wiggle Wrap (the first was made with 2 other shades of Kauni)but decided on a Hitchhiker and a TGV shawl/wrap instead. The color repeats are large and blend beautifully into each other. I look forward to working my way through the other Kauni color options. This is not the softest yarn to knit and sometimes not the cleanest(some twig bits here and there), but it blocks beautifully and softens up a surprising amount. I've used hair conditioner or fabric softener and let it sit awhile before blocking it and that seems to work.

                    While scatchy on the skein, once knitted and blocked, softens and blooms nicely. Love the long length between color changes in this self striping wool. Made a shawl, and will use again....

                        I hastily wrote a review before I finished a shawl. This yarn softened up considerably, blocked beautifully and the finished garment makes up for any corseness of the yarn. I am so pleased that I will be ordering more.

                            An expensive mistake.
