I love this yarn! I like the Cascade merino yarns and I purchased this one because I loved the color and it is washable. I made a shawl for my daughter - it is presently in the post to her - and I hope she loves it! This shawl worked up beautifully on my bulky knitting machine.
This yarn is squishy and soft. Butter is embarrassed to be in the same room! Flows over the crochet hook like air. Great yarn to keep your tension in check when crocheting. Too tight and it will start to split on the hook. Colour strands are long but transitions are no more than 1 stitch and the next colour is on the hook. Generous 200g cake is a deal at the sale price at the moment of review. Will buy again.
This is the second colorway of this yarn that I have used. Love the yarn and how it crochets and the wool content is perfect for me.
