I ended up choosing this yarn as I was knitting Harry Potter scarves for my kids, so the yarn had to be long-lasting, machine washable, soft next to the skin AND come in some pretty damn specific colours! It also needed to be high quality and easy to work with as I'm not a particularly good knitter and need all the help I can get. The yarn ticked all boxes. The scarves finished beautifully and my kids wrap themselves up and say "Mmmm, cosy!" I plan to use it again for a Fair Isle hoodie for my daughter.
