I got a skein of it as part of a bag-of-wool type of offer. I wasn't really crazy about it. It felt rather coarse to me. I used it in a felted kitty bed, and it felted well. I just wasn't crazy about knitting with it. There are much softer yarns out there.

It is coarse but it has lanolin and is great for diaper covers... my friend swears by it. According to her- it is incredibly difficult to felt. It's only slightly coarser than cascade from the experience I've had with it.
