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.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

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