I love this yarn. I have done a few designs with it. Great yardage, great colors. It is nice and soft, and if it doesnt feel totally soft to you, if you wet block it- it get so soft. LOVE this yarn - hookmeup on ravelry
At first I hated this yarn when I was knitting up a swatch--it was itchy/scratchy all the things I hate about wool, but after washing/blocking the swatch--it was wonderful. Great stitch definition. I bought this yarn because I wanted to try out Plymouth's yarn and the yardage per skein intrigued me. After making a swatch with my first skien. I bought 3 more, which had knots. I guess the more yardage per skein contributes to more breakage on the manufactureing line. Using colorway 10: olive/purple to attempt making an Entrelac shirt from Interweave Knits Spring 2011 isuue.
I would prefer to give this a 4.5 but only because of the knots that I have in my skein. I am working on a hat and a scarf from the one skein of Evergreen and I really love this yarn. I had to frog the hat a couple times with a few starting up errors and though it fuzzed up a little, it held up well to the repeated frogs.
I love the subtle color variations in the yarn. This is one I will be buying again and again.
