I ordered this yarn, because it was recommended for the pattern I was going to use out of the book, Knitting 101. But it is just wonderful to work with; it us soft and moves smoothly through my fingers and over the needles. I have nothing negative to say about this product.

This yarn has very little stretch and after trying several different cast on methods I decided not to make a sweater with it. It also had many little tufts of white yarn that didn't belong in the blue/green varigated yarn I purchased. When I tried to remove them, the yarn separated and couldn't be twisted back to the original shape. There were also several knots in the skein I tried to work with. The colors are beautiful and I am disappointed that it wouldn't work out for my project but the unopened skeins are going back.

        This yarn is much better quality than I expected given the price. It's super soft and easy to work with. It has very little stretch, which worked nicely for the projects I had in mind. The yarn is definitely a little splitty, but I frequently work with splitty yarns (they're often softer) so that's no big deal for me. Use a rounded hook or needle and just keep an eye on it.

          I have used this wonderful yarn to craft a baby afghan, a baby sweater, 2 baby hats, 8 pair of baby booties and several chemo caps. The softness is unbeatable.

            I am using this yarn to make 3 Dragon blankets. I bought a kit from Herrschner's that came with a pattern/yarn, but the acrylic they sent was very poor quality. I purchased this yarn to use instead and although it's softer, I'm rather disappointed in the quality as well. It splits quite a bit and I have come across 3 to 5 knots in every ball. I'm not even exaggerating. The ends also unravel very easily, making weaving in the ends quite a chore. I purchased about 30 balls to use between 2 blankets and a hat. I won't likely be purchasing this yarn again.

                I am knitting a Baby Blanket for a great-grandchild. So far the yarn has knitted up very nice and soft. The yarn does snag and splits easily when knitting. I have just made certain that I don't get any extra threads into the stitches as I knit. I would not suggest this yarn for a first time knitter. It may prove to be to frustrating with the threads splitting.

                        I bought this to make a scarf for a friend who is allergic to wool. Even though it is soft and beautiful, I am not enjoying the yarn at all. It's too easy to split apart the plys (plies?) when entering a stitch. Even when there are no splits, the work in progress just looks sloppy. I'm disappointed.
