How do you like working with that yarn? I made a sweater and a blanket with it and found it to be messy. When I cut the ends it fuzzed real easy. Do you have a trick for that. I would love to use it more because it is SO soft but. Man was it a mess and I am also worried that the stuff will just keep fuzzing off.

It is quite messy. Frankly I have no idea how it will hold up when I am done. But I have super soft fuzz all over my couch and anything I wear to work with it. It is however, SUPER soft and I love the feel of it.

I wish I had tricks to share, but I don't. The only advice I have is, dont' pull too tightly. I did a rectangle with it for a poncho, and when I was done, I was GENTLY tugging on the cast on row, to even it out and it snapped! It is not stretchy at all.

I made a sweater out of it so cute and soft. I tied a little not at the end of each string before weaving in. I hope that will help. I guess time will tell. It must just be the yarn since you are having the same issues. I was thinking I was doing something wrong with it.

I love your blanket the colors are beautiful.
