Everything I said about Shepherd Sport Yarn same review title applies to Sportmate however, if you are not married to all natural, Sportmate has the added bonus of being machine washable. An advantage if your project is designated for a child or tween!
I have made over a half dozen Lady Violet's dinner gauntlets and love how easy it is to knit with this yarn . . . consistent stitches, gorgeous color combinations, making for a great result.
My only caution is that the more colors in the skein, like Child's Play, the more self striping between rows and I prefer the random variegated effect found using a skein with three colors. But that may have been caused by the pattern for the fingerless mitts. Just keep it in mind!
