I originally tried this yarn because it had colors for two of the Harry potter school houses. My daughter and her college mate wanted scarfs. I fell in love with the yarn. It's resonably priced and its soft and easy to work with
I chose this will because I found it somewhere on line that it match colors for the Griffendor House of Harry Potter. I loved the wool! It was not scratchy against the neck and it knitted up very nicely! If you want to make a quick scarf for someone - this is a good choice.
