The colors in this yarn are beautiful, however, the quality is quite questionable. I crocheted a vest as a xmas gift for someone and then passed on gifting it because as I finished the project the yarn broke and frayed really easily during the knotting process. I was quite surprised. This is not a high dollar item compared to some other yarns of this variety but I'm not sure I'd ever trust washing this garment now. I'd pass on this brand in the future and spend additional money for something more quality from Artyarns or the Lorna brand.
