This yarn is so soft. It knits up a fabric that's not real dense, but still nice and sqiuishy-soft. Knitting it is a breeze and I've had no trouble with it splitting. My batch had some variation in thickness, which wasn't too noticeable in the finished project. Some of the thinner spots seemed to kink up a bit, but there was no breakage or knotting. I enjoy this yarn.
Wonderful kit! The yarn is gorgeous and soft in a real pretty mottled blue color. I've never tried the Handmaid before, but I think its going to be my new favorite lotion-- it absorbs readily and isn't greasy at all, so I can get right back to knitting without getting my yarn grungy. The Aquae scent is nice, kind of like a warm spring breeze. I'll probably pick up another kit here soon, these are fantastic!
