Bought 15 additional skeins of this yarn

I made the Fiddlehead Set pattern and had so many complements and requests that I ordered 15 additional skeins to make hats and mitts for Christmas gifts.

I am a veteran knitter. I know my yarns. This is not worsted weight. Sorry. I also ordered a DK weight at the same time which was actually THICKER than this "worsted weight" yarn. When I returned with my comment I got the response that "it does knit up with a stitch gauge of 5 stitches per inch on US 5-7 needle, which is the typical gauge for a worsted weight yarn." Sure, maybe if your tension is that of a toddler....

        I'm using this for a sweater (for a wool-phobic sister). It works up easily & looks great, but I'm a little concerned that is might not hold the weight of the sweater over time. We'll see!

            The yarn is very soft and has good stitch definition. Yes it is splitty, but most cotton and cotton blends I have used are, so no surprise there.
            I cannot comment on durability as I am still working on the project. Strongly suggest swatching and blocking for anything where the finished size is a consideration.

                I am working with it on a lace pattern. The yarn opens up the lace beautifully, but sometimes it splits.
