The colors are wonderfully bright and rich in this yarn. The 4 stars out of 5 however is because this yarn is barely twisted together....it's like a roving almost. It felts well, and when I used it in fair isle the ends stuck to one another like they're supposed to, but I was initially unprepared for how loose this yarn was to knit with. Stitches are fat!
I really hate to knit with anything other than these needles now....the points are so wonderful for lace, smaller items like socks, cuffs of sleeves, etc. They just make all my knitting go more smoothly. I'm going to accumulate a set in every size!!
