Hi OO! Speaking of oil, I've also heard that the machine knitting yarn may be (very lightly) coated with an oil, perhaps to make it easier to machine knit? So it looks and feels a bit different to handknit with (perhaps coarser), but once you wash it it blooms and softens nicely.

This is secondhand f/what I've read - if you use it, please tell us your experiences with it
