recommend Karisma superwash wool?
I have a pattern that calls for Karisma superwash, and I was just wondering if anyone here has ever used it, likes it, would (or would not) recommend it, etc.

Karisma
I have used it on a sweater and found it easy to work with and easy to care for. One thing I found was that I wound up using a smaller needle than suggested to get the knitting to feel firm - but that could just be my knitting style.

Thanks for your reply. Quality-wise, would you say Karisma is a cheaper wool, middle of the road, or high quality wool? I am curious because if I order it online I won't get to look at it before I buy.

BTW, I like the quote in your signature.
