The yarn is quite slippery and loose twisted, but it was quite easy to work with anyway, and it is so soft and colors are great! I made a little purse with it, and planning to buy some more to make a summer top.

This yarn was impossible to work with. The loose plys easily split. The rayon ply often got dropped and I would have to make repairs on the next row. I gave up and frogged half of sweater. I could just see it snagging on my ring and watch. Yuck.

I'm knitting baby clothes with this and I'm having minimal problems with splitting. I am knitting it at a much firmer gauge than is recomended on the label. I'm using size two needles. I love how the rayon makes each individual stitch gleam. Even stockinette looks exciting in this yarn. If you're having trouble with splitting, I suggest using smaller needles; maybe a pair with a blunter tip.
