Beautiful yarn to work with. I'm using it for knitted chair pads for my kitchen chairs.
I made two afghans from the taupe/brown color of this yarn. the color had more red in it that I wanted, so it's more of a dusty cocoa than a taupe, which is not what I wanted. But it's too much trouble to return. I used the size needles recommended and felt that the end result was flimsy and thin. A thicker knit on smaller needles would probably give me the feel that I was hoping for. In fact, I am half-way to deciding to undo both afghans and just make one thick one, using smaller needles.
