Great neutral to have in your stash. A steadfast worsted weight yarn. This is a workhorse yarn, great for amigurimi, especially for washability if the toy will be for a youngster. I have made a cowl with this but found it to be too rough and scratchy for that type of wearable.
The yarn is a reasonable price and washes very well. I have used many balls of this and there may be the odd knot but generally good quality.
I like this yarn but was disappointed with this roll. A third of the way into the roll was a large imperfection and again through it there was a join.
I have used Super Saver yarn for many afghans and the yarn holds up well after years of use and many washings. It is actually fairly soft and makes for nice afghans and scarfs.
