Yarn is squishy and soft, nice to knit with and knits up quickly. I have not washed yet, so cannot comment. My real complaint is the color photos - I know monitors can be off, but I received multiple yarns in my last order and some were exactly as pictured. One was much lighter than pictured and the two colors of this yarn were much darker and duller than pictured. They are not bad colors, but the Blackberry is not a bright purple, but more what the name would suggest, a deep dull purple and the fuchsia is not a hot pink, but rather a dark dull magenta color. I'll use them, but they won't work for my intended project.

This yarn feels lovely on the ball. And it feels lovely as you are knitting, like plump velvet running through your fingers.

But... it is one of the worst-wearing yarns that I have ever beheld. Do not use it for anything that gets *any* abrasion (sweaters, mittens, socks, etc), as the yarn will stretch, pill, and look shabby nearly instantaneously. If you are knitting something large, then beware, you will watch your knitting age before your eyes. Ask me how I know. Sigh.

The only items for which I could recommend this yarn are hats and scarves. But what's the point of its superwash labeling? It seems reasonable that one can splurge on all sorts of luscious (hand-wash only) fibers for accessories that don't need frequent washing. So why would you choose this yarn above such others?

So, my conclusion is that this yarn is good for fondling and little else. Maybe appropriate for a scarf for someone who has no idea that wool comes from sheep, etc.

          I love the colors and softness of this yarn and have been making newborn hats.
          I was disappointed in the color "bark". It appears to be brown as you would expect from the name but looks more like a green in the light. I would compare it to "basil"

                  This yarn is so soft and knits into warm gloves. It knits easily, the colors are lovely, the strands stay together. The biggest problem I have is finding it at local yarn shops. I usually end up ordering from WEBS.

                  I used this yarn to knit a hat. It has a soft halo that won't hide detailed stitches. During my knitting the yarn had a tendency to split at times but nothing too bad. It's soft, bouncy, and comes in many colors. I will be buying more again soon.
