The yarn is soft and light, a delight to work despite its tendency to split. It has become my favorite for mittens, hats and baby/child items.
I like the softness of the yarn
The jury is out on the yarn itself. I knit a baby hat and it is soft, but got pretty fuzzy on the first wash. This is supposed to be washable wool, so we'll see, but we're not off to a promising start. The store service was great, though, very prompt shipping.
