I discovered this yarn a little over a year ago, knit a scarf, and suddenly had a new favorite yarn! The knitted fabric was warm, squishy, soft, gorgeously striped, pleasingly textured, and comfy next to my skin. I even wrapped the baby in it a few times, and she promptly fell asleep. However, I did notice that another reviewer said the yarn was uncomfortable on her skin, so I need to add for the sake of objectivity that I knit loosely and my skin is not particularly sensitive. What a wonderful alternative to Noro I can't wait to knit another Souk project!
Purchased several hanks at another store. Colors are lovely. Made a cowl from Cascades websites pattern. Unfortunately it's very scratchy. I've tried soaking it in everything I can think ,of finally hair conditioner for an hour and it's still unwearable next to the skin. Very disappointed.
