Yarn is squishy and soft, nice to knit with and knits up quickly. I have not washed yet, so cannot comment. My real complaint is the color photos - I know monitors can be off, but I received multiple yarns in my last order and some were exactly as pictured. One was much lighter than pictured and the two colors of this yarn were much darker and duller than pictured. They are not bad colors, but the Blackberry is not a bright purple, but more what the name would suggest, a deep dull purple and the fuchsia is not a hot pink, but rather a dark dull magenta color. I'll use them, but they won't work for my intended project.

This yarn feels lovely on the ball. And it feels lovely as you are knitting, like plump velvet running through your fingers.

But... it is one of the worst-wearing yarns that I have ever beheld. Do not use it for anything that gets *any* abrasion (sweaters, mittens, socks, etc), as the yarn will stretch, pill, and look shabby nearly instantaneously. If you are knitting something large, then beware, you will watch your knitting age before your eyes. Ask me how I know. Sigh.

The only items for which I could recommend this yarn are hats and scarves. But what's the point of its superwash labeling? It seems reasonable that one can splurge on all sorts of luscious (hand-wash only) fibers for accessories that don't need frequent washing. So why would you choose this yarn above such others?

So, my conclusion is that this yarn is good for fondling and little else. Maybe appropriate for a scarf for someone who has no idea that wool comes from sheep, etc.

        So disappointing. The baby blanket can't get used. The knots broke when I rinsed it. I had to mend the blanket. No, it's just decoration.

                This is quickly becoming one of my favorite handknitting yarns. The cable/rib stitches have more 3D quality because of the loft in the yarn. I love that it is machine washable and is soft.

                    I bought this in a dark grey color, to alternate in an afghan with a much brighter self-striping yarn. This Debbie Bliss is a pleasure to work with. It's soft and even and has no bad habits that I can see! Another plus -- and maybe it's a fluke -- but so far I have used 9 balls and haven't encountered a single knot. What's not to love about this yarn?

                        I downloaded a scarf pattern from Purlbee. The finished product was a a similar shade and I know this yarn will be a perfect substitute, plus it was a $$ savings.

                        This was the yarn I picked for my first project years ago. It is so soft and I liked the idea it was washable. Boy was I disappointed, it actually began to look ragged before I even seamed it. The pilling is the worst I have seen, which would be tolerable if it didn't stretch. My capelet is twice the length it was when I finished. I would avoid this yarn.
