I used four colors of it for the multicolored stripes in a sweater for myself, plus another six or so colors in a hat. It was delightful to knit -- soft, non-splitty, non-twisty -- and it washed and dried beautifully in the machine. I washed a large swatch first before I started the sweater and was amazed that it came out of the dryer (I set it at medium but my dryer is HOT) looking exactly like it went into the washer. The same was true of the sweater when I ran it through the washer (warm wash, cool rinse, normal cycle) and dryer at the end of winter. I cannot say enough good things about this yarn.

This is the most disappointing yarn I've used in 50 years of knitting. The color was just what I wanted; knitting with the yarn was very pleasant. I completed a very complicated sweater and was excited to clean and wear it. At the very first -- very careful -- washing, the yarn pilled horribly; I have sweaters that are ten years old that aren't such a mess. I've worn the sweater one time, and it proceeded to shed all over my slacks and turtleneck. I was a mess within an hour. I won't ever wear the sweater again; I'm not sure it's is worth giving to Goodwill. Don't waste your time or money on this yarn. (I have given it one star because the system won't let me submit the review without a star...hmmmph.)

    I am still knitting the Wind Chill Cardigan, so I can't speak to how well it will wash or wear, but I am enjoying the journey. Has a nice hand and good drape.

              I used this for a vest for my 15 year old niece. It worked up well. Was nice and soft. I machine washed and dried it. Came out perfect. Going to use for some baby clothes

                Just a great all-round yarn. Enough twist to keep it together, but loose enough to keep the softness. A few bits of fluff clinging to the yarn but easy to pick off and very few and far between.

                  It was not the yarn that was a gift but the finished baby sweater that I made with this. I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn and would certainly get it again for any child whose parents need to easily wash and take care of the garment.

                    Bought this yarn with no previous knowledge or experience with it. I crocheted a gorgeous African Flower motif hat for a friend that came out better than expected and I give most of the credit to the yarn though I'll take a little for myself!

                      This yarn is soft, knits up easily, resists splitting and has very good stitch definition for a superwash. I made a densely patterned sweater with it and it shows off the patterns well. I will definitely use this yarn again.
