We're always excited to talk yarn and knitting and answer any questions you might have!
I’m so happy with the feel and workability of this yarn. So far it’s knitting up perfectly for a mid to heavier weight pullover.
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... ;)

Neruda, a pattern by Natasja Hornby, might just be everything we love in a shawl: textured, geometric stitch patterns, a generous, enveloping shape, and yarn that makes it fly off the needles. Plus, it's entirely worked without a cable needle - need we say more?
Joey of Winter's Weather Knits designed the ultimate comfort cardigan with this piece. Generously oversized, with a shawl collar to snuggle up in, and beautiful texture details, it's not only fun to knit, but extremely wonderful to wear.
