    I love this yarn! It is so plush and feels so good against the skin that I can't stop knitting with it. I think it's best used for items such as hats and scarves that do not need to withstand heavy abrasion because it is lightly spun and will pill. I personally would not make a sweater with it. But for a hat, cowl, or scarf, it is absolute heaven! I've used it for lots of gifts, and every recipient has commented on how fabulous it feels. I recommend washing by hand (or in a machine without agitation) but then drying by machine on a drying rack to allow the cotton to contract. The yarn does stretch when wet, but if it is dried by machine, it bounces back nicely. It is machine washable, but I feel that agitation makes it look pill-y and old too quickly. With care, it can continue to look new.

    I so much wanted to love this yarn. After finishing my sweater knitted with the outer, I hand washed it and it shed like crazy! and when dried, it looks like an old sweater. oh, by the way, it's still shedding. Hate to think what happens when machine washed. I won't be knitting with this yarn again.

      Comments about Spud & Chlo� Outer:

      I hate this yarn so much! And it's sad, because I really wanted to love it. It's deliciously soft and pleasant while knitting, but it pills and sheds too much. The slouchy hat I was knitting with it already looked worn and old by the time I finished it, before even blocking it ( which I just skipped altogether for fear of the problem becoming even worse). I have had this hat for nearly a year now, and it is warm and soft against my skin, I'll admit. It's the only reason I kept it, since it had also stretched out to the point I have to constantly pull it out of my eyes.I would never use this yarn again, not for myself and definitely not for gifts. ayer all the work involved in knitting something up, having it look old and faded right away is just not ok, especially for a yarn that is kind of pricey for the tiny yardage you get.

      I made a Leaf Blanket from Spud and Chloe with this. It is gorgeous ! It worked up really fast - as you might expect from a yarn of this weight. Great yarn to work with.

            I used this yarn to make a bolero. There were a couple of snags and knots in the yarn, but for the most part it was a dream to work with. I loved how defined the stitches were, and it was super soft to work with. It does have a halo of fibers, most likely from the wool content, but nothing that has presented a problem yet.

                Comments about Spud & Chlo� Outer:

                I used this yarn for a baby blanket. It knit up fast and beautifully. I read the concerns about stretching and pilling so I was worried about machine washing. I used a no-rinse wash, soaked in the washer with no agitation, then spun dry. I dried it on "knit" in the dryer until barely damp, then reshaped and dried flat. It came out fine with very minimal stretching and no piling.

                  I got this for a baby gift project and it really is amazingly soft. I had never understood what "superwash" does but this does NOT unravel or split or tangle, a joy to work with. The purple color I got is a good strong color, very lovely.
