I have not used it. Sorry I can't be of more help. Looks like nice yarn though.

I had asked about this a long time ago too and didn't get much response. Someone had linked a review of it though... it has been so long i don't remember where but either craftster or knitters review sticks out in my head and based on the review i decided against it. I seem to remember pilling problems maybe? or super itchy? i am sorry i can't be more help but maybe checking the review sites will work. I can't do it from here because work blocks most anything (sssshhh... they haven't found out about y'all yet! :hiding:) that could possibly be not work appropriate (umm... except YouTube. :shrug:)

I think it's supposed to be softer than Wool of the Andes, but not real soft. I haven't used it either, but the bag sale really has me tempted. Though none of the colors I'd really like are included....

I heard that it pills quite badly. Too bad cause the price is right! I guess that's really a case of getting your money's worth.
