I got two skeins of this, bulky, in a grab-bag type package. The colors are very nice, but it's not super soft on the skein. I suspect it will soften up with washing, since it's minimally processed. I plan on making a felted Kitty Pi bed with it. It feels like wool, basically.

As Ingrid said, it's not the softest yarn in the world. However, it does soften up considerably upon washing. And if felts exceptionally well!! I have used it for felted clogs, a felted bag and also for pants for my DD.

I really like the colors in person even more than on the website. All of the "solids" have little flecks of other colors that really give the finished product a lovely depth of color.
Is this a cat toy? No, it's a sock disguised as a ball of yarn.
