This is a wonderful yarn to work with. It has great yardage and the finished garment is sporty and looks more wooly than it feels. The yarn instead has a soft hand. It slides along your needle smoothly and does not split if you have to pick up a dropped stitch. In addition, it does not pill. Stitch definition I would say is average...not crisp because of the varigation in the yarn, but not fuzzy either. All and all, a delight to work with, and I this yarn will not be discontinued.
I've knit with yarns that worm before, and this is the best behaved, following Sally Melville's instructions for her minimal scarf to the letter. Knit on 8's, I had virtually no worming. I did tack the ends in with needle and thread after felting, and I did wash and dry the finished scarf as Sally instructs. The result is absolutely yummy, and because Touch Me colors are so gorgeous, this would make a special gift for anyone and well worth the price of the yarn.
