Love this yarn! I bought it to take the place of Mary Maxim's Aran Irish Twist (very expensive to ship online and unavailable in stores for my area) for the Dreams of Ireland Afghan and I'm very pleased with how it's working out! The color is a bit more yellow than the pattern calls for, but I'm familiar with the color "issues" on computer screens for KnitPicks and I'm not upset at it. It gets 4 instead of 5 stars for having some irregularities and random cuts in the yarn, which I've never really experienced with KP's yarns. It's so squishy and easy to knit up though, and the stitch definition is gorgeous!

Lovely colors. So soft. Made cardigans for my littles ones (3 y.o & 1 y.o). And it washes great. Also made blankets for them using this. Easily one of my favorite non-wool yarns. Next I'm trying "CotLin" to make summer cardigans for them!!

Yarn is great but very disappointed in the color. I'm making a Weasley sweater for my nephew and I thought that the Caution color would be a nice gold for the letter. It's a neon canary color instead so I'll have to look elsewhere. Luckily this yarn is very reasonably priced so it's not a huge loss.

I am absolutely in love with this yarn. It has quickly become my favorite. I make amigurumi (I run a small side business) and the stitch definition on this has been exquisite. I love how comfy my little ones are with this yarn. I am sensitive to a lot of fabrics and I find this yarn does not irritate my skin, even if I crochet for hours on end. It is a delight to work with. I may have gone and ordered a ball in every color (for variety and experimentation, of course).

The colours are often not as shown. I recommend doing a search for projects made with this yarn on Ravelry. That way you can see multiple images of different items knit up with this yarn, in different lighting and angles, to get a better idea of what the colour looks like. The yarn also gets ‘fuzzy’ quite easily after finishing your project. But for what you pay for it, it’s actually pretty good. Softer than what you’d get for the same price anywhere else.
