Overall Boston Sun Rating: 3 out of 5 (3.0 based on 1 review)

I wish my skin liked wool.... 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
I ordered this in my quest for a non-wool bulky yarn that doesn't develop a halo of fibers after it has been worn. So far so good on that front, but the yarn looks a little dull. Mine is gray, so possibly the brighter colors would be better, but it reminds me of kite string. It also untwists fairly easily. Wool makes me feel itchy, but if it didn't I would definitely pick wool over this.
