This is the third or fourth time I have purchased this yarn. At first because the price was great and the project had a budget. But I came back because it's very nice to work with, it has a nice crisp hand and softens up with blocking but retains it's drape. The colors are clear and have a subtle glow that set this yarn apart from a couple of other "workhorse" labeled yarns. I have had two knots in 30 balls and perhaps 6 slubs, splices or obvious thick/thin bits. I said "splits" as a con but not in a bad way - just the behaviour of the superwash and the ply of the yarn.

I bought this yarn to be the connecting border on a hexagon stained glass style crocheted blanket. I really do enjoy the variety of colors from which to choose and the saturation of the colors. What I don't care for is the ease with which this yarn splits while crocheting. I also was hoping for something a little softer. The other yarn in the blanket-to-be is also a superwash, but it's softer, less likely to fray, and just more enjoyable overall. Maybe the texture will improve after washing, but I can't say I'm charmed.

    Comments about true Classic Superwash:

    I used two strands as a substitute for bulky weight yarn. It is smooth and lovely to work with. The only disappointment is occasional uneven dyeing and large bumps. They are mostly hidden in the cables,however.

              This yarn is good for the price. I was happy with how soft it was. I haven't washed it yet, so I can't comment on that. It can let off some hairs here and there, but overall it doesn't shed too much. It does, however, split. I would buy this yarn again.
