Radical change after washing! 1 out of 5 (1 out of 5)
I used this yarn for a child's pullover. I swatched, got gauge and all went well until I washed it per label. The fabric relaxes to the point that it grows by inches, completely throwing off the sizing. Even if I had washed the swatch I don't think I could have compensated for the growth. I really should have checked the Ravelry comments prior to purchase...

I really like the feel of this yarn and that it's superwash. It's a little splitty, but I usually blame that on the way I twirl my yarn around my fingers as I knit. I highly recommend it. It looks so gorgeous knitted up - beautiful stitch definition!

I just started knitting with this yarn 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Nice texture, smooth and doesn't split very easily. I am very happy with this yarn and it was on sale. Who cares if it was a discontinued color? ultramarine

Squeezably soft! 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
Made mitts and a loooong, skinny scarf. Feels great next to skin, just right amount of twist, and shows off cables beautifully.
