This is a lovely soft yarn that is like knitting a cloud. It is a chainette so it will snag with sharp needles. The finished product is light but very warm and there is no bleeding with hand washing and blocking. It's very drapey and has certainly kept me warm during the rotten Polar Vortex Deep Freeze. I'd knit blankets of this stuff and be happy with the buttery feel of it in my hands during the knitting.

Very soft but tends to snag.... 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
This is a wonderful, soft and drapey yarn. Just be warned that it tends to pull and snag on jewelry. Warm as can be!
