HiKoo - Simplicity
Easy to work with 4 out of 5
This isn't the best yarn I've ever used in all my years of knitting with worsted, but considering the price and the great variety of lovely colors it comes in, I continue to purchase and use it. The wool/acrylic yarn is machine washable, retains it's color nicely, and is squishy soft. I use it as a worsted and on occasion, as a sport. Using it on smaller needles makes it knit up beautifully. It remains a staple in my knitting stash for no other reason than it's versatility. On size 7 needles, it makes great fingerless gloves on size 4 needles, it made a great winter hat. You'll just have to try it yourself to see what a nice yarn it is for the cost.
