knit picks wool of the andes bulky yarn?
 
does anyone have an opinions? specifically...to use for a vest for my DD, and a sweater for the DH. it looks like great prices, but as mom always says "cheap is dear" ....

thanks!

I haven't used their bulky weight, but am knitting a sweater from the worsted weight and I really like it.

Some have said that it does pill quite a bit so that's something to think about.

It does pill a lot, and I don't think it's soft enough to wear next to the skin.
