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 used this to weave fabric which will probably become clothing. It is soft and has wonderful color changes (I got the "rainbow" colorway)

      Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I already have.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Souk:

      I really like the material for the shawl I am making for my daughter but began to get weary when the there were lots of breaks, where the yarn goes from a nice thickness to a point where it is so thin it unravels.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Souk:

        I have now ordered five skeins of this fun yarn. I have completed two triangle small scarfs and they are adorable. I added a ruffle to one using some ribbon yarn in my stash. The multi colors are terrific to blend as you knit.

        The yarns speak SPRING and as I send my finished products out as gifts, They bring a smile to my face.

        I am going to knit the rest of the skeins and offer them in my little Etsy shop. Another winner for Cascade.

        Happy Spring, all! Grandma Honey

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Souk:

        It has the ability to knit up into anything you like and look great. It can look country knit one way and city sheik in another way. Just enjoy your find and always checkout the closeouts. You will love everything you buy from Webs. And the service way above what you would expect.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Souk:

        This yarn is what I would call "dirty", meaning that plant matter wasn't cleaned out of the wool well enough before spinning. Now when it rubs over your finger, it sometimes feels prickly. This is distracting because I always interrupt my knitting and try to pick out the pricklies!

              Souk looked lovely online but when I got it, it was MUCH thinner than I expected, so did not fit my needs. Looks like it might be a better fit for knitting.
              High rating though goes to www.yarn.com for the fine handling of my return and prompt refund. Thank You!!!
