Hate the fuzziness of this yarn- purchased Green Mountain Madness colorway and the fuzziness makes it look really cheap and worn out (and it's not a good fuzziness, like an angora halo would be a good kind of fuzziness). Also, contrary to what the colorway name suggests, there is *very little* green in it! It's mostly blues and purples, with a tiny splash of forest green. Madness, indeed! Pills some, also. Not a fan of this yarn.

Hade great expectations with this; bought Indian Summer and the colors are spectacular. I agree with Lelah; this started fuzzing before it got off the needles. Also beware; blocking takes out the shine of the silk.
That said; I am still using it for small accessories, where the above is not so important. however, I will remember not to make anything I have to block.
In spite of this, it is a lot of yardage, so I can make numerous small projects; and it is delicious to work with.
