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.

        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.
