Overall Elysian Rating: 3.7 out of 5 (3.7 based on 6 reviews)

I really like the quality of this yarn. Soft but not *splitty*. Great stitch definition. My only negative is that it is manufactured in China. I would order it again if it was made somewhere else.

Love this stuff! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Have you ever knitted with a yarn and the whole time you are knitting the project you are thinking about all the other projects you'd like to knit with it? This is truly a work-horse yarn, and I don't usually raved about wool/acrylic blends, because, ew, acrylic?, but I am currently knitting a child's sweater with this and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Springy, soft, wonderful drape, and machine washable! I will definitely be buying this yarn again!!! I can just imagine a gorgeous log cabin blanket in many of the vast colors available.... Mmmmmm.....

Untwists and Splits 2 out of 5 (2 out of 5)
This yarn feels soft next to the skin and has beautiful color. However, it also untwists and then splits. I bought two colors, one is dramatically worse at separating and untwisting than the other. I would not buy again.

Great Yarn! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I bought three colors of this yarn to make a baby blanket for my friends new baby. I bought the superwash for ease of washing. The yarn holds together well, is soft and I love the stitch definition. I could see this making a great sweater as well.
