I enjoyed working with this yarn. It’s very soft and supple. The yarn does work up rather loosely so using a smaller sized needle helped it to have more structure. Overall great yarn for a good price.
I've used this is 3 colours, now. It's quickly become a favourite. Pros: The colours are visually interesting, with a nice sense of dimension. The yarn itself is quite soft! Borderline baby soft, even. Perfect for a sweater, even for a picky kid. I didn't have any trouble with the yarn splitting on my hooks. Cons: I did have trouble with a couple of the balls (2 out of 12 balls) where the yarn had a lot crazy knots, some of which had to be cut. I've found the best way to avoid hassel with these is to always start from the outside. Most knot trouble I found was near to the middle, so, starting fromthe middle can doom your whole ball to The Basket Of Shame.
At Yarn Canada I found the Yarn I was looking for and at a good price. Service and product are excellent.
