Hard to work with. I'm normally a very even, on-gage knitter, but I had to go down two needle sizes and my fabric rowed out horribly. Yarn is also permanently crimped and frogged five minutes after it's knit. Pretty though, and machine washable.

addendum: The color faded and the dye leeched into the water - and all I was doing was wetting the yarn to block it. The slipperiness of the yarn also makes it very difficult (impossible for me) to sew nice seams. Have really hated working with this.

Like it a lot! It's soft and has a lovely sheen, and knits up nice and even. It's a nice alternative to cotton for baby knits, and has more give on the needles, too.

I agree with the 1st post, i too am normally an "on-gauge" knitter and i too had to adjust, i haven't finished knitting it yet, and don't have a problem with the feel of the yarn, it's quite nice to knit with, and it does have more give than 100% cotton. I will admit to being a bit concerned about making it up reading the problems a previous post had with seams.

I am delighted with this yarn! The knitters may be having some problems, but I'm using it to CROCHET a sweater for myself and am not having any problems at all with the gauge. I love the soft feel, and it works up beautifully. For my project, I'd give it 5 stars, 5 being the best.
