This is an awesome yarn!  This is my first time to work with real  handspun yarn varying gauge and that took some time to get used to.  However, even though the gauge gets quite fine in places, it doesn't feel at all like it may break.  I am currently using this yarn for a knit-along project for <A href=http://www.menwhoknit.com>www.menwhoknit.com</A>!
I highly recommend this yarn!!
