I dunno, people say it pills, but I made a scarf and hat from it, and don't see any pilling. I haven't washed them much, probably need to throw them in the laundry this year, so maybe it's repeated washing that makes the pills? They're knit at a large gauge too, which people say will make something pill for sure.

I love CSS, it's one of my favorites to knit with. I have found that it gets even softer when you wash it, and it loses some of the stiffness that it has when it's not washed.

The only issue I have with it is that after I wash my FOs they're somewhat less thick than they were before I washed them... I think it's just the yarn's density, though.

I knit because sometimes it's the only way to keep from strangling stupid people.

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't realize CSS washed up that nice. I will probably use some for baby sweaters. They don't wear them very long so it should be fine.

I have made many things from CSS and it washes and drys up great.I don't put in a dry sheet though because I read somewhere that the dry sheet will make the item pill.

I just finished a baby blanket in feather and fan and have started a second one (for twins). I have had good luck with the wear, and haven't noticed any fuzz while knitting. It knits up really well and I enjoy using it.
