I used this yarn many times, and I will use it again. Used many different colors, and none disappointed. Made hats and scarfs as gifts. Made home decore items for myself. Cannot say enough good things about this yarn. Knits evenly and quickly, with beautiful stitch definition, soft and warm. My favorite inexpensive yarn!

Careful knitting is required because every stitch shows in such a bulky, solid-colored yarn. A few of the skeins had weak sections of yarn that I do not typically see in commercial yarn, and which required me to undo partial rows. The yarn does not have a soft feel, although washing helps a bit. The heather colors (I bought dark gray) seemed courser than the solid colors. I made a cardigan, which is rather heavy but nice, as well as a zip-front vest. Both were quick to complete because of the bulky weight.. Although I usually have to use smaller needles to achieve the correct gauge, I actually had to go up a size for this yarn.

      I bought 3 colors to make fingerless mitts for friends. I used a simple pattern with a cable down the front. They came out great! My friends loved them. I'm now going to make a pair for myself!

        I used this to make a scarf for my 79-year-old father, so I needed something that was warm (he lives in Wyoming!), but was still soft and nonitchy, and was washable. I was wondering about the color -- it's pretty bright -- but he loves it. He just told me he uses it every day.

          This is my favorite yarn for gifts. It has a nice texture to knit with, even though it contains some acrylic. Items made with it knit up remarkably quickly and look great. Not to mention the colors are rich and beautiful.

                  I ordered this yarn recently to knit a long cardigan sweater. It's the perfect yarn for this project. The color (a dark purple plum) is great, since there is a very subtle bit of dark blue in the yarn. This gives it a deep, rich look, rather than being just a flat purple.

                  The yarn is very soft and pleasant to knit with. At this gauge, of course it knits up quickly, too. Machine washable, too! Highly recommended.

                  Knits up super quickly and is delightfully snugly, but it has so little twist that it snags easily and was very splitty to work with.
