I used four colors of it for the multicolored stripes in a sweater for myself, plus another six or so colors in a hat. It was delightful to knit -- soft, non-splitty, non-twisty -- and it washed and dried beautifully in the machine. I washed a large swatch first before I started the sweater and was amazed that it came out of the dryer (I set it at medium but my dryer is HOT) looking exactly like it went into the washer. The same was true of the sweater when I ran it through the washer (warm wash, cool rinse, normal cycle) and dryer at the end of winter. I cannot say enough good things about this yarn.

This is the most disappointing yarn I've used in 50 years of knitting. The color was just what I wanted; knitting with the yarn was very pleasant. I completed a very complicated sweater and was excited to clean and wear it. At the very first -- very careful -- washing, the yarn pilled horribly; I have sweaters that are ten years old that aren't such a mess. I've worn the sweater one time, and it proceeded to shed all over my slacks and turtleneck. I was a mess within an hour. I won't ever wear the sweater again; I'm not sure it's is worth giving to Goodwill. Don't waste your time or money on this yarn. (I have given it one star because the system won't let me submit the review without a star...hmmmph.)

          I used this yarn for an infinity scarf for my daughter. The yarn felt wonderful while knitting and knit up beautifully. My daughter loves the way that it feels around her neck. Not itchy! I only wish it came in more colors!!!

            This is my new go-to for a DK weight superwash wool yarn! I love the sheen and the softness, and machine washability is great for the people I love to knit for.

              I made a baby dress with this yarn. It was such a pleasure to knit with. It was very soft and "bouncy" and felt great in my fingers. It does split a little bit, so it may not the best choice for someone's first knitting project. Be prepared for it to GROW when you wet it. I was careful not to stretch it too much when I blocked the dress, so it turned out fine, but when I first pulled it out of the water it was huge.

                I crocheted a sweater for my grandson and it turned out beautifully. This yarn is soft, works up into a good weight for a winter sweater and has beautiful stitch detail.

                  This yarn is working great for the sweater I am knittting. It's just the right weight. Not too bulky or too thin. The color is what I expected from the picture when I ordered it. The delivery was quick with no problems.
                  I plan to order this yarn in a different color for another project.
