Cheapest I've ever seen it! Spent the same amount getting four that I would have getting one from amazon. Reached me quickly in excellent condition, expertly packed for as little waste as possible, and they even sent along a lollipop. It was blue raspberry! I freakin' love blue raspberry. 10/10 will buy from here again.
I ordered this to make a baby blanket and I'm quite happy with it. It's very soft and feels a little bit like cotton, it has a good weight and drape to it which I'd describe as similar to cotton, and it's nice and non-irritating. I like it so much I plan to get more to use for a spring sweater for myself! It washed and dried well in the washing machine and dryer. Colour is exactly as pictured here. I would definitely recommend this yarn.
Enjoyed this yarn -- but be aware that even the solids come in two different weights -- can mess up the amount you need to buy if you are not aware of the difference.
Pro's - Soft to begin with and softens after washed - Machine wash and dry - Colour is as seen - The sheen is beautiful when worked up (I crocheted a chevron blanket with yarn) Con's - Because of its softness and sheen it is just a little more "slippery" to work with then lets say Bernat Super Value yarn. And the hook gets caught in between the ply's of yarn.
