The colors are bright and quite stunning on the needle. The knit is plagued by splitting and takes some effort to keep the stitches clean. The wool washes well in that it holds its color but it fails to hold its form well.
This is a yarn to work for "loose form" draping. Once washed the garment wants to sag some but, in the right garment, that sag could be drape. I used it for a toddler's hat (for color in the design) and it was a total failure for that use.
