I've never used that yarn and I've never had the problem you are describing while knitting. I have however had what sounds like a similar problem while working.
I worked a fair amount with fiberglass casting material and if I handled the casts without gloves on I would get loads of bumps on my hands where I got pricked by the fiberglass and in a sense got slivers in my fingers.
I wonder if one of the fibers in the yarn is just rough enough that you are irritating your skin.
