Soft, soft hand to this beautiful yarn that knits up easily and quickly. I made two infants caps from these yarns and both were happily received by 'Moms' and worn by babies.

The yarn does NOT shred, is easy to work (even using small needles - I used #4.

I knit a baby cable pullover from this, and knit it at a firm gauge (size 2's & 3's), yet it grew a lot, and after one gentle hand wash it grew even more. The sweater is now too big. I would recommend this only for hats, scarves, etc, IOW only things where the fit won't matter, because it will definitely grow. (yes I did swatch & washed my swatch, but apparently on a larger mass of fabric it has more weight and this causes it to grow).

        This yarn is soooo soft but still has heft to maintain structure and pattens. I bought it to "convert" someone who doesn't wear sweaters because of the itch of the wool. It is a lovely knit.

            I used this yarn to decorate a pair of moccasin booties. Since the other yarn I used was worsted, I had to double the yarn but it worked great! Customer service was very helpful and item arrived promptly and was well-packaged. I would certainly order again!

                        I purchased this yarn to make the mosaic scarf found in Vogue Knitting magazine. While this project is challenging for me, the yarn is beautiful and the scarf design and colors are great. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.
