This has become my "go to" yarn. I've used it for everything from fair isle mittens, to hats, scarves, and sweaters. It is beautifully soft, with a lovely halo. The weight is more like a DK than worsted and seems to work best for me when using size 4.5mm needles. Currently working on a cardigan for me and I'm loving it. It's not just about the finished garment, but the joy of knitting each stitch.

Sheds really badly

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

I made gloves with this and for real, they look like I've been petting a heavily shedding cat. The more I wear them, the worse it gets.

I wouldn't buy it again. It's too bad when you really love the look and feel of a yarn only to have your fo look ratty at the end.

        The colors are lovely, the yarn knits up into a soft, stretchy, and sturdy fabric. I made several hats with the four colors that I purchased.

            I am still knitting the sweater and have already had to repair 3 holes from the first several inches from the bottom. I have never had yarn break like this in the 50 years that I have been knitting.

                  This yarn is knitting up into a nice, even fabric for the cardigan I'm making. I like the overall drape and feel of the fabric, and the heathered color (Berry Pie Mix) is going to be very versatile.

                      One of my favorite yarns for sweaters. It's soft, but it's "sticky" enough to give a sweater the body it needs. The colors are beautiful.
