    It was a nice yarn to work with. I made an oversized sweater with it.

    I used this wool yarn because it was called for in my pattern. It was nice to work with, had good stitch definition and some springiness. I also really loved the color. The price is so good on this terrific yarn that it is reasonable to knit something that requires a lot of yarn. I am grateful because who wants to work that hard and have a project made with poor yarn? My recipient thought the yarn is a little scratchy but will be wearing a t-shirt underneath anyway. Also, it will likely soften with wear.

    Love this yarn. I made the Petite Knit Jenny Jacket in Heather gray. Soft and springy with good stitch definition.
