A great yarn for super fast knitting. I used it to make a blanket/throw for my son for Christmas. It's super soft, warm and cuddly. As another reviewer noted, it does shed a bit (I quickly learned not to wear black when knitting with gray yarn!) and has a tendency to pill. Hopefully in time that will settle down.

      I'm making a cabled throw with this yarn. It has the look of a really bulky yarn (it is really bulky) and it's so soft and warm. I love touching it and knitting with it. The color is also really pretty.

      This yarn knitted quickly into a beautiful, bulky scarf that is very soft and warm. There is a small bit of shedding but no more than you would expect from 100 % wool.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum:

        I knit a cowl with this yarn. The pattern called specifically for magnum. The color is rich and the scarf knit up beautifully. I did have some problems with it pulling apart several times. It was recommended that I wind the yarn from the end of the shank rather then the beginning to prevent this from occurring in the future with this particular yarn.

            Used this yarn for a buttoned cowl as a gift for a friend. I do not wear this bulky of a yarn but it was perfect for what she wanted. Perfect weight, perfect color and I did use a pattern that was designed with this yarn. She loved it!
