The texture is nice to knit soft and cozy socks. The colors are good, but not as great as I would expect from Kaffe Fasset: they are a bit dull, especially the brownish yellow and the green (That's the reason why I rated 4 stars and not 5). But overall, I'm very happy with this yarn. Great quality, nice patterning texture. I would definitely buy it again, even if I was a tiny bit disappointed with the colors (but my socks are still awesome).
