I had no trouble winding this on a ball winder. There have been a few thin spots that I spit spliced. I first thought that the yarn was too stiff and would not be manipulated so I changed patterns. It is working well in Dangling Conversation. I wouldn't try to use it in a pattern that had any difficult, over-manipulated stitches. Simple is best. The yarn softens up wonderfully but don't expect sharp definition.

I've ordered Cascade yarns a couple of times and have never had a problem. This "Souk" yarn was just awful. Had to hand wind all the balls because it broke SO easily. While winding, I came across several places where the yarn had broken and the manufacturer had simply sloppily knotted it back together. One skein was broken and knotted back together in three places.

I purchased this to knit up a displayed pattern in my LYS, and then I continued to buy it for numerous other projects. I love all the thick and thins and slubs, Wool and silk are perfect companions in yarn.

      I knit a shawl with this yarn. The colors are beautiful but the yarn twists and knots. I'm not sure I would order it again but am glad for the shawl I made.

                Lighter than I thought it would be. I've just started a sweater for myself and it's going to be really nice.
