                          I bought this yarn primarily for color (French Roast)as I was looking for yarn to make a scarf at my daughter's request to go with a camel coat. I thought that the fiber combination would make it soft enough to wear close to the skin, but structured enough that it would stand up for the long haul. I haven't finished the scarf yet, but I have enjoyed knitting with it and it does appear to meet the parameters.
