I love this soft cushy yarn. It knits up easily, looks smooth and the colors are rich. I made a cardigan that I can actually wear with just a tank underneith and not one itch - just warmth and sily softness.
Cons: Yes, it pills - but I have yet to meet an Angora who doesn't. I also had one unfortunate ball that had four knots in it which nearly gave me a corinary only because I thought I might be short the main color, but in the end I had a whole 8" left:-)

          This was discontinued a few weeks after purchase. Needed one more ball of the yarn, and had to search
          other websites that may have had it.

                I knit my first houndstooth mittens with Sheffield and I'm pleased with the yarn and how the mittens came out. The stranding is so compact that they are as warm as a pair of double knit mittens.

                  Best yarn for sweaters, scarves, shawls. The yarn is one garde above Cascade 220, silky and soft, easy stitch definition, reliable in gauge. I wish this yarn is available like the basic stock yarn as Cascade 220 with as many colors as possible, in this fantastic price.

                  This yarn felt so good in the ball and in the finished scarf, but my clothes were covered with fuzz after each crochet session. Don't know how it will wear or wash since it was a gift. I would recommend this yarn, but only with a warning about the shedding.
