Very soft. Worked up into a great baby blanket. Color pooling gives it a patchwork look with the pattern I used.
This is my favorite yarn for knitting my favorite baby sweater ("hooded baby sweater with back zipper"--free pattern on ravelry.com). It becomes very soft after machine washing and drying, and I love the way the colors look when knitted--no pooling, just pleasing blends of colors with a very nice speckled effect. I love to give these practical sweaters as baby gifts, and I love how colorful they are in this yarn. The yarn is just a bit splitty as I knit, but it's a very minor problem.
