    Yes, it is possible to split stitches as other reviewers have stated, but the feel of this yarn while knitting and then wearing is worth being just a tiny bit more careful. After all, if it were too easy, it would be in mass-produced things and then what's the point?

    I had made a garter stitch simple scarf, and before I was finished, there was fuzz. Now that I'm done, there's a lot of fuzz. I will be unable to present this as the gift I intended it to be. The colorway I had was Vino, and while the yarn is soft, and a beautiful color, it's unwearable. I would love to ship this to the company for their input.

        The service from Webs is great, you are not waiting long from the time you are place your order to the time that you are receive your yarn. I have never had to wait long for my order to arrive. It is a special treat, seeing that Webs label.

          This yarn works up beautifully for scarves and shawls. The colors didn't pool and the yarn was lovely to work with.

            Beautiful soft yarn which easily pills. I love the colors. I wouldn't use it for anything that gets hard use such as gloves or socks.

                The Water Lilies colorway is really lovely - I knitted a Vitamin D with it - was very pleasant to work with, good stitch definition, lovely drape.

                    I ordered this in the "Shadows" colorway which turns out to be lovely blues and greens. There isn't as much color variation as I expected from the web picture, though.
