It is always risky ordering a product online. If the merchandise proves defective there is a question as to whether it might have been smarter to handle the item prior to purchase. The skein I received did come with a manufacturing defect - happily it was quickly replaced by another skein which is perfect and just wonderful to knit with. I am knitting Wendy's Serpentine Socks, so glad she recommended this yarn,.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
