Mine just came in the mail in about 3 days from NV to IL, so I can't judge how well it washes and wears, but the feel of it is wonderful. Here is a link to the Ravelry page for the yarn: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/malabrigo-yarn-dos
if you click on the projects tab, you can see finished and wip from other people
The color is beautiful I doubled it, using a strand from each end and subtly variegated. It springs back and has give when you pull it, which is great for my too tight knitting style. The only thing I could have wished for would be a less harsh vinegar smell both during knitting and after 2 washings with Eucalan. It's not a deal breaker for me by any stretch, but still- strong enough to be commented on repeatedly by family and friends :/
Fabric made from this washes very well- proud to be giving the end product as a gift.
