Unfortunately this yarn, though indicated to be a 4 weight, varied throughout the skeins from thick enough to be considered bulky to nearly thread-like which made for inconsistent sized stitches and thickness of garment. I gave up on using it because the item I was knitting looked worn through in some places because the yarn was much too light for the needle size I was using; in other spots it was too thick and bulky, especially if I was joining a new skein to my work.
Also because of the varied colours, it was difficult to join yarn because the colours did not run in a repeated order but haphazardly so that I was not getting a nice repeat run of shades and colours but mismatched and unflattering long runs of some colours and even near-white patches of others.
A very disappointing yarn to try to work with, especially since the photo sample gives a nice impression of consistent weight and colour variation.
