I’ve been knitting for over 50 years and this is the best feeling yarn I’ve ever worked with (forget cashmere). I don’t know how it will wear as I haven’t finished my comfort cardigan but I’m hoping it won’t pill or feel scratchy. Right now it’s feeling wonderful as it slips through my fingers. I love it!!!
Very pleased with this yarn. So soft.
I have not used this colorway, but expect it to knit up beautifully, as other colorways I have used.
my only comment is that I thought it would be a more silvery color, rather than the medium light grey it was.
Ran out of yarn for a project. Staff was very helpful in getting me another skein to match.
