This yarn is actually pretty nice, but I have had to pick out threads of very stiff plant material and spiney seedlike things every few inches. This has been in every skein of of the 10 I have used so far. Since nobody else is complaining about this, I am hoping I just got a bad batch.
This yarn is lovely to look at, delightful to hold, but both skeins I purchased had many knots, several of which had been joined without regard to the color repeats. If consistently repeating colors are important to the look of your project, I recommend you pass this one by.
I usually find I only like only natural fibers, so I can't believe how much I love this yarn! It is easy to knit with, doesn't split and makes the most divinely soft hats, booties and gloves that can be tossed in the washing machine. The only drawback is the skein length is just a bit shy of one pair of gloves, so I end up using only a little bit of the second one…..but oh well!
