I had no trouble winding this on a ball winder. There have been a few thin spots that I spit spliced. I first thought that the yarn was too stiff and would not be manipulated so I changed patterns. It is working well in Dangling Conversation. I wouldn't try to use it in a pattern that had any difficult, over-manipulated stitches. Simple is best. The yarn softens up wonderfully but don't expect sharp definition.

I've ordered Cascade yarns a couple of times and have never had a problem. This "Souk" yarn was just awful. Had to hand wind all the balls because it broke SO easily. While winding, I came across several places where the yarn had broken and the manufacturer had simply sloppily knotted it back together. One skein was broken and knotted back together in three places.

      I love this yarn for lace, once it's blocked it holds it's structure nicely without being stiff. The prices are great on Yarn.com and the color selections are very good.

            Texture is good for lacy products. Colors are great.

            Yard strength is weak, not good for sewing seams.

                I knit a shawl with this yarn. The colors are beautiful but the yarn twists and knots. I'm not sure I would order it again but am glad for the shawl I made.
