I used this yarn for my first knitting project and made a cardigan. I was so dissapointed with the pilling issue that I sent the sweater to the company. It gets pills and some long stringy things that you get obsessive over and pull them off endlessly. After several months they sent it back saying there is no problem with the yarn and included a couple of skeins of some horrid yarn that I just gave away.

I haven't had the pilling problems that couzillou reports. I really like this yarn, and the colours it's available in -- especially the variegated ones (Tapestry is my favourite).

I used this yarn with no problems in a green, brown, and multi colour (hats). I loved it, and started a sweater with solid black. Pilling!! Agree with couzillou - The finished product is going to be very fuzzy! There are also these 'strands' - white, stiff, that show up every once & awhile that you have to pull out - but are intertwined with the wool. I think the problem may be with the colour?? Good for hats, not nice sweaters!
