What is this wool like?...is it good for sweaters and hats and scarves?...does it pill/felt easily?...is it similar to Patons Classic Wool?

I have only used it for felting. I think it would be too rough for sweaters. I believe others have said that it pills also. Not as soft as Patons Wool. Great price for felting projects though.

I know people have used it for sweaters, etc, but I've heard if pills pretty bad. I only use it for felting. Patons Classic Wool is softer, but I don't know if it pills a lot. The cheaper wools seem to though.

I haven't used KPWOTA, but I made a sweater with KP Merino Style, and, while it is soft and comfortable, it pills, too. I think that's the nature of Merino, though!
