I love this yarn! It is real yarn, not some glitzzy and sparkly for the moment yarn. It has a wonderful, soft hand yet provides excellent stitch definition. There is a slight halo with this yarn, most likely the camel content. The colors are wonderful, intense yet somehow mellow. I have used six of the colors and they blend very nicely with each other. I usually knit with a finer gauge yarn than this, but think I will try a Fair Isle technique just to see how the colors blend with each other. I have knitted one project in a pattern stitch, one in intarsia and both were well-served by this yarn. I would give it 5 stars, but I have not yet washed it and want to see how it wears. I expect to be back soon and add another star to the rating! It is my new favorite yarn.
