I've used this yarn many times and like it very much. It's important to remember though, that this yarn varies more from batch to batch than perhaps any other yarn I've used. The greatest variation I've seen is in color intensity--some skeins can be quite pale, while others have intense, gorgeous color. JBW of course, has no control over what they receive, but it may be worthwhile calling before ordering to get an idea of what they have in stock and what it looks like--especially if this is important to the particular project.
I purchased 3 skeins of this yarn in different colors. My previous review was after knitting with the first skein. The next 2 were perfect and had no knots. I think that the first skein with all the knots may not be the norm and would like to update my review.
This yarn is very similar in texture to Malabrigo Silky Merino. It's very soft and warm you definitively want to knit or crochet something to wear around your neck with it. It seems prone to a lot of piling, so I don't think it'll be a good option for gloves or socks, but I can be wrong.
