I've used this yarn for several projects and while it is not good for everything it is very good for some things. The yarn is large and sturdy. feeling rough at first, or hard, however once it is washed is softens up beautifully. I've used it to make a very nice shrug as well as hats and, as the reviewer above mentions, bathroom accessories.
I would like to note that reviewers should not try to hedge things their way by putting in several negative reviews as someone has done above.
