I'm not sure what about this yarn was supposed to be deluxe. I found it to be splitty and difficult to work with. It was not at all as soft as I expected I actually found it to be rather coarse and unpleasant. It didn't have much bounce at all to it, either, so I found it difficult to use for colorwork. It does felt nicely, but since I don't generally felt anything, this does nothing for me. They really should change the name to generic scratchy wool and save the deluxes for the merinos, bfls and corries. This is the stereotypical itchy sweater yarn. For an inexpensive 100% wool yarn, Patons Classic is much better.
First of all the service on Jimmy Bean's Wool is incredible. I received my order in 2 days. So fast! And the product is amazing. The yarn is gorgeous and plush. Already made a shawl from the 3 skeins I purchased. Will purchase again.
I love the Cascade yarns for their quality, affordable prices and wide range of colors. I bought the sport-weight to make a lace crochet shawl and it's turning out lovely. It will make a lovely warm gift.
