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 try to buy this on sale and make cardigans for my grandchildren. Its a lovely yarn and would love to make myself something out of it. Best thing is that its so soft. I would say, better than Cascade 220 Superwash.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Very good delivery time. Arrived in good condition.

              when I wet blocked my cowl neck sweater, the yarn bloomed beautifully hiding any uneven stitches, creating a wonderfully comfortable garment. I often have a problem wearing wool next to skin, but not with this yarn.

                  I am a longtime shopper at WEBS. It is a little distance from me, but well worth the size of store, wealth of information available from staff in person, online, by
                  telephone. This yarn purchase was a special one, but not for obvious reasons.
                  A dear friend gifted me with hand carved stone buttons in a soft aqua color. I'd been haunting yarn shops nearby for a dk yarn to match (for over 5 years)!
                  I found my perfect match online at WEBS. So I am very happy with awesome photos and true color matches. Kudos to all involved at WEBS in color, presentation, photography, etc!!!!!

                  It's a pleasure to knit with this oh-so-soft yarn, and the DK weight makes for luscious sweaters. I've purchased this in plum, lime, and cream so I can have a variety of all weather sweaters.
