I had no trouble winding this on a ball winder. There have been a few thin spots that I spit spliced. I first thought that the yarn was too stiff and would not be manipulated so I changed patterns. It is working well in Dangling Conversation. I wouldn't try to use it in a pattern that had any difficult, over-manipulated stitches. Simple is best. The yarn softens up wonderfully but don't expect sharp definition.

I've ordered Cascade yarns a couple of times and have never had a problem. This "Souk" yarn was just awful. Had to hand wind all the balls because it broke SO easily. While winding, I came across several places where the yarn had broken and the manufacturer had simply sloppily knotted it back together. One skein was broken and knotted back together in three places.

I knit a shawl with this yarn. The colors are beautiful but the yarn twists and knots. I'm not sure I would order it again but am glad for the shawl I made.

              Made a Window Pane Shrug and this yarn was perfect. NOTE: while the yarn is somewhat stiff while you are knitting/crocheting, it has a wonderful texture once you block it. It losses some of it's bulk and becomes quite soft!

                The wide bands of color weave up into a beautiful shawl that fulls just enough to make it functional as well as beautiful.
