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.)

        This is really excellent for mid-weight sweaters and not "oh so heavy" hats ansd scarves. Hand washes beautifully, retains it shape in garments and has a really pleasing texture/feel.

            Theslight elasticity of the wool creates even fair isle stranding. I'm making a fair isle sweater for my grandson so the machine washable apspect is also very important. Love this yarn!

                  I've been purchased the inexpensive synthetic yarn for practice, it's time for me to upgrade to a softer, more luxurious yarn. Thank you for having these great products available at my fingertips.
