I just bought some of this at a knitting store and it is the softest yarn I have ever knit! I litterally sped home so that I could get it on the needles. It is not plied (or is that considered single ply) the way Malabrigo Worsted is. It is so soft and silky. There were no knots in it when I wound it and after making a hat, I had nearly alf a skien left. I am truly in love. I though it was funny that is smells a bit, well, like Alpaca, as it is natural and has no dye. The smell disappeared after a bath. Even though it is not dyed, the colors are still quite beautiful. I am in LOVE!
I am making a cabled hat and this was in the stash. It was the only DK weight that I had and I have never knit with it. It wound up nicely and once I started knitting with it it felt like heaven on my little fingers. It is smooth and silky but not slippery. The finished hat is turning out lovely. The slight sheen on the yarn (that I thought would not be visible with the busy cables) is still there. It is subtle but not sparkly. The blue that I wam using is rich in the way all Malabrigo yarn is. In sum, beautiful and a delight to knit. Can't wait until payday so that I can buy more.
