I too have noticed it, but probably wouldn't have noticed it near as much except:
I bought some Homespun about a yr.ago and was taken by it. So frustrated, I decided to get over that, and my fingers learned how to knit with it
double strand, a huge afghan.
So now the Caron SS doesn't bug me near as much, my fingers kind of know how to handle it.
Boy ohhhhhhhhhhhh that SS is SO soft and loverly
PS if you wet two fingers together a lil, then stroke the yarn you will be knitting just before it hits the needle, that does help
