The look of this yarn has seduced me more than once...but crocheting with it quickly reminds me why it's best left in the ball. It's much rougher on the hands than I expected, with a mostly super thick texture that thins out from time to to time. Worked up, it loses its natural sheen and just goes limp and flat.
I made a hat that took yarn 3 st/inch, and the result was too thin too be warm so in order to get it to work, I had to knit it with a strand of knitting worsted. It worked well, but I was disappointed because the coloring of the yarn did not show as well
