This is a wonderful, soft, heaven-to-knit-with yarn. It is one of my favorites to knit with now, with it's softness and beautiful colors. It's as nice as Lion & Lamb. I'm recommending it to all my friends who are wanting to make cowls, hats, or anything that you want to wear close to the skin. Don't hesitate to buy this, even at full price. You won't regret it!
