Stretchy yarn made winding/knittin a nightmare

By a Knitter

from southwest

Since this comes in hanks, be prepared to hand turn your swift, otherwise you will be stretcing this rubbery yarn out of shape. I was so turned off by its rubber bandy-iness, I donated it to a fiber arts center, perhaps a weaver can figure out how to use it. Should've returned it. Bought it at retail with the discount. Ouch.

Soft and fluffy

By Snow day knitter

from Way upstate New york

I was looking for a less expensive alternative for berroco north star and happened upon this yarn. It worked out well for the scarf pattern I was using, even though it was not quite the same weight. The colors are lovely. I am always looking for yarns and patterns I can recommend to friends who are beginners and this yarn would be top of my list for someone who has the basics down and now wants to stretch out a bit. It is easy to work with and the finished product looks fabulous even with a super easy pattern.
