Made a Common Ground sweater for my daughter, now have a sweater for my SIL in process and yarn for my son, me and a friend. Softens nicely with blocking and holds its shape very well. I highly recommend the yarn and the pattern. I have knit 5 or 6 sweaters, but always rip them out before I finish. This one came together beautifully and is an amazing finished product.
Extremely disappointed when I got this yarn recommended by Jimmy Beans on a phone order. It's definitely NOT a bulky yarn, the ply separates and thus is prone to splitting. I knit booties to felt and they just didn't turn out nice. The yarn didn't felt well. Really a fail since I told them what the project was that I needed orange yarn for. I'm going to donate the rest of this giant hank of yarn to charity. I know a lot of people use it, I just can't imagine why except for the price.
I picked the exact same fabric for my hoodie that was in the pattern. The yarn is beautiful and very soft an easy to work with. Knitting this project has been a pleasure so far. Wanna say Thank You to Jimmy Beans wool for making this yarn affordable.
