add on to previous review. Anyone else have this problem with this yarn fuzzing up? Color great, knits beautifully. But it has a real problem becoming fuzzy. You dont want to put alot of money and time in something that is going to pill.

I purchased this in Baltic, a great color. The problem with the yarn is that it began to fuzz up after knitting about two weeks, on a two skein shawl. There were little fuzzy areas which if not trimmed off probably will become pills. This was before I blocked the shawl. It knits beautifully, but this fuzzing problem is concerning.
