I found that this yarn was amazing when it was steam blocked. I have recently resumed double knitting and consequently my stitches can be slightly uneven and require some 'tweaking' to even out. I went ahead and did that, but I still wasn't completely satisfied with how my gauge swatch was looking. Then I steam blocked the swatch. WOW!!! what a difference, all of the stitches evened up and all of the 'teenager' aspects (Lucy Neatby's euphamism) went away. If I want a worsted weight wool that's able to be washed, this is where I'll be coming again...

I LOVE this stuff!! I've done an adult sweater and 2 kids sweater with this and I'm so happy with the result. It softens up a ton after a wash and is super comfy :)
