Absolutely no complaints about this beautiful yarn. Soooo soft to the touch and knit up beautifully on size 10 and size 11 circular Addi Turbos. Used it for a cowl and the 10 needle produced a more dense fabric, while the 11 had more drape, but still plenty of coverage. Could easily see knitting this on size 13s as well for a cowl or scarf. Believe the size 11s are best bet for a sweater or clothing article, even though the label calls for size 10. This is another great aspect of the yarn -- definitely quality and not skimpy in the gauge department like so many other yarns can be. The colors are to die for. I selected the dark olive green and it is rich and very evenly dyed. I will definitely buy this yarn again and again. Can use it for babies and next to the skin items and would recommend "gentle" washing so as not to interfere with its incredibly soft hand for a 100% wool.

LOVE IT!!

I am finding this yarn very perplexing. It is super soft for basic wool which I was very excited about. yet now that I am knitting with it I am not as fond. I am a very experienced knitter and yet I cannot get even stitches with this. Maybe it is because I am using wooden needles and should be using metal? Wondering if better slip would prevent the stiches from looking so wonky. I think I am going to have to rip out the sweater that I started a week ago. I bought it in ecru so the stitches show up very clearly. So mad that they look twisty and weird! I think that some of it is because this is not a single ply. who knows. not sure when and if I will buy more of this.... they have lovely colors and I would like to see if I can get around this stitch evenness problem by using addi turbos or something.

        This yarn is soft and beautiful and easy to work with. My only complaint is that the colors are significantly darker than shown on the web site by several shades.

              This wool makes a wonderful baby blanket, and because the dye is the same, it and be combined with Superwash 220. I make baby sweaters out of 220 and then matching blankets out of 128 and they match perfectly.

                    I love this yarn. I just finished knitting a jacket with it, and it's just beautiful. The yarn is very soft, comes in lots of nice colors, knits up evenly with good stitch definition, and I only encountered one knot in a batch of 10 skeins.

                    I always enjoy knitting with Cascade yarns, and this one is no exception. Highly recommended.

                      Very nice yarn. Knits up quickly. More of an aran/ bulky weight. Blooms a little so be aware of that. Has a nice softness to it. I made 3 baby cardigans out of and it performed well after washing. Stretched slightly. Lost about a stitch length and a half. Quite springy after drying. Gotta love that. Make sure u wash and dry your swatch before measuring gauge if u normally don't do that.
