I made the Madonna poncho out of this yarn. VERY slippery which was frustrating with this pattern. Also, fringe will pull!!

The hand of this yarn is very loose, so it doesn't hold shape very well. Kind of difficult to work with (slippery and snaggy a bit), but very pretty colorways and it washes well.
