I love making DK socks and this yarn is beautiful for that.
Although the colours are wonderful and colour fast, there were three barbs in the yarn as I was knitting it. I feel mixed about submitting a lower than great review, because the yarn is so lovely but the barbs were annoying.
2018-03-24 EDITED REVIEW ---> The company has resolved the issue by offering a replacement skein. The yarn is lovely! I knit with it and it's absolutely amazing. The colours are strong and the yarn is amazing to knit with. I give the company 5 stars resolving this issue - Ginette Stone
