i find the 'halo' to be almost too much, and the yarn is terribly 'snaggly'. i have found lots of tiny knotted joins in each skein.

otherwise, the 'cedar forest' colorway is very pretty, and my 'february lady' sweater will be a pleasure to wear because of the cuddly softness.

although i have knitted with more frustrating yarns than this, i doubt i would use it again unless it came in at some ridiculously low price.

              The yarn was soooo dark. One set was fine and the color acceptable but the other color I ordered was very dark as compared to the photograph on Webs' site.

                        Used this for a shawlette. Had many compliments. The colors are very rich and deep. Garment weight was just right for those chilly occasions when you just need "a little something" on your shoulders.

                              I' m using this to make a shawl. The colors are vibrant and the yarn is soft.
                              Very to knit with it.
