Delicious! Reasonably priced, soft, light, warm. I made a cardigan which is currently being pieced together and I cannot wait to wear it! I knit the entire cardigan double stranded and it is still light enough to wear on a cool summer night.

This is a very nice yarn to knit with; silky and soft in your hands. However, it pilled horribly after just one washing--does not wear well at all.
