Just dont make anything for your husband with it... But (maybe it is just because I am also a guy) I kind of agree with him... Sorry, i dont want to offend anyone. The color is great and I am sure it would make a nice textured felted item, but, honesetly, I don't like the way it looks.
Everyone else seems to love it, so don't even worry about what your husband and I think. If you like it and it's fun to knit with, then go for it!
