used dark purple, handwashed it and the colour really bled and grayed the light green. i was disappointed that this happened. Otherwise, knits up nicely, feels good to work with and good meterage.

I found this yarn to be very rough to work with and not what I would consider soft. It also has small flecks of debris in it that had to be picked out. Fortunately, I knitted it with strands of Garnstudio cotton viscose which helped to soften the feel. This is very harsh on the skin.
