This is aa fun yarn.
There are splotches through out from where one strand has been allowed to touch on strands being dyed another color..all while the yarn is still wet from dying.
It also isn't very soft...but I hear it softens after washing.
A bit of splitting..no big deal.
Also often large white spaces appear mid color due to it not getting dyed in that spot at all.
One other problems is that the matching is not very dependable when trying to match the color sequence for a pair of socks.
Colors tried Jelly Bean and I think it's called Denim.
I would indeed buy this again, BUT
I would use it only for socks for the immediate family..no gifts socks, or for toys.

I am wondering if anyone out there has any magic stripes color bright spring pattern? I need enough to finish one more sock. If anyone does know please post a comment on here with any contact information. I was making a pair for my granddaughters birthday and didn't realize that this yarn had been discontinued. Thank you.
