I'm knitting my son a school jumper with this yarn. It's absolutely fine for this purpose; although I had envisaged something more 'wooly'. But this is superwash, and I suspect that might be the compromise one has to make with such yarns. Anyway, it knits quickly and fairly easily. Minor issues I have with it (and this might be due to my relative inexperience as a knitter) is that it splits fairly easily if I'm not paying attention to my knitting. The other thing is that it's incredibly dull to knit (I prefer more interesting yarns and colours; this is navy blue, pretty boring). Overall though it's pretty much spot on for a school jumper. It's yet to undergo a wear/wash test, so we'll see.

    it is a lovely yarn to work with, knits up easily with minimal splitting. Washes in machine no problem and that just makes it softer. Unlike a comparable product it does not pill

            Purchased for kids' Christmas sweaters, with red as MC, and white CC for snowflakes, intarsia. Very true to gauge of 5 st per inch on size 7 needles. Love the stitch definition, and will purchase more of this yarn for other sweater projects. I really appreciate WEBS packaging and shipping; yarn always arrives in good condition.

              I made an afghan from this yarn and love it - it's very soft and warm and so nice to knit with. It's the first yarn I thought to use for a scarf for a friend of mine. It's coming together nicely.

                I wanted a super soft yarn for a baby cardigan I plan to give as a gift. The recipient is not a knitter so I knew she wasn't up for hand washing the garment every time baby spit up on the front of it. This yarn fit the bill. It's very soft, has good stitch definition, includes generous yardage, and it's machine washable. All the things I needed!

                Chose this product based on others reviews. My daughter specified the color. She was very happy with the color and texture. I haven't begun knitting it yet but don't foresee any issues.
