I really love this yarn, it is like knitting marshmellows. I normally don't like knitting with cotton but I loved this stuff.

Very soft yarn with a nice spring to it because of the microfiber. However, the yarn can get splitty and achieving an even tension is a little tricky. I had to tighten up my purl rows.

Great yarn to knit with. The yarn is very different than typical cotton yarn because of the acrylic blend. The yarn has a lot of give on the needle so it should be knit with a fairly loose tension (I knit a bit tight and had to change my tension to use this yarn).

I made Rowan's Audrey sweater with this yarn. It was a pleasure to knit with and the end product is beautiful. It is in the wash alot because my daughters take turns wearing it each week. It is holding up very well even with all of the washing. I agree that keeping consistent tension is a bit tricky.

I made the Elspeth bolero from Rowan 37 out of Calmer, and I must say, it is well worth the money. I have yet to see a yarn like it (in such an array of gorgeous colors) - it is very unique and a dream to knit. Getting guage is of course a bit of a hassle due to the elasticity, but the extra swatching pays off in the form of a well-wearing, light, and soft garment.
