Although the yarn feels nice in your fingers it is quite hard to knit with because it keeps turning and twisting into itself. I started a poncho for my daughter but took it apart again because the twisting drives me nuts.

I tried again with the same yarn (colour # 3310) and made the "Hey Mickey!" skirt from knitty.com for my daughter. It turned out beautiful!
I also made a tanktop for both myself and my daughter with colour # 3308 mixed with Wellness red. They also turned out very nice.
The yarn feels very much like cotton, it's a great summer yarn. The shiny part of the yarn gives it a little extra something.
Knitting with it was quite pleasant this time. I didn't try to untwist it but just kept on knitting. As I was sowing the garments together with this yarn, the strands were easily coming apart so I had to be very careful with that.
All in all I like the results very much.
