I'm currently knitting Glampyre's Boobholder with this yarn, and though the feel is very luxurious and pretty looking, it splits like nothing I've ever experienced. Because the yarn is chained, it's easy to have the integrity of the yarn get all whack and find tiny loops sticking out of your work. However, I'm still sort of obsessed with the feel of this yarn and I love that it's non-animal fiber, so I will deal with the splitty factor.
Additionally, I'd have to disagree with some of the stats listed. My label says it's 48% cotton, 47% modal, and 5% nylon, it can be knit on needle sizes 5/6, and gauge is 24. I'm currently using size 5 needles and it's perfect. Definitely not a heavy worsted; more like in between DK and worsted.
