I've made a couple of scarves and 1 hat from this yarn. it's definitely a little tricky to knit with, but once you figure out how to handle it, it becomes worth it! I learned that it's better to use a smaller needles, as opposed to a larger one. Personally, i won't use larger than a US 10.5. I also try really hard not to handle the garment too much while i'm knitting... that seems to reduce the 'worming.' Finally, when i finished, i sewed in the ends but didn't cut them (i did that after felting). Then, i put the scarf (or hat) in the washing machine with towels and on the hot/hot cycle. I DID NOT put it in the DRYER. when i took it out of the washing machine, it looked like a wet dog - and took about 2 days to dry. the sheen returned after it completely dryed - and got silkier with age and handling!
