I have not yet used this yarn, but I can make a few small comments here. It's very affordable and even though I ordered it prior to the price increase, I would order it again at its slightly higher price. I think it's gorgeous, I love the shade of grey that I ordered and I can see that this yarn and I will be spending many delightful knitting hours together. And frankly, I love that it's wound into a ball, I can just pick it up and get started.
Amazing colour palette
Using this yarn for a blanket. It's perfect for it as it's still quite affordable and comes in an amazing colour palette. I needed 4 matching blue tones. Found them... ;)
