My son is a die hard fan of the Pats and wanted a balaclava for cold SD days/nights. This is perfect for him. Love the feel of this yarn as I'm knitting.
I love this yarn so much! I'm knitting at a fairly tight gauge for boot socks (on 2.75 needles) and the fabric is beautiful. I would say it is a little heavier than sport weight; perfect for nice, thick socks. The colors are so vibrant and saturated. Would highly recommend this yarn.
