Unexpectedly nice! 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I am using the green/grey/blue colorway to make the Textured Tunic from Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel, and I really like how it is coming along! The yarn is soft from the skein, not scratchy or irritating to work with, but it does soften even more with washing & blocking. It also creates a slight halo. Although I must add that I was not impressed with it just by touching or looking at the skein. It sat on my shelf until I needed to make a hat that I didn't want to use up my favorite yarns on, so I knit a swatch... after which I decided that I DID like it and would purchase more for a sweater. So, my advice is... don't discount it until you swatch it! For the pricepoint (on Wool Watcher) it cannot be beat!
