I will have to agree with Emily. The quality of the yarn is poor. I started working on some mittens a couple of days ago. While the stitch definition was itinially very good, over the two days it has already started to fuzz and pill. The second mitten still looks good while I’m finishing off the fingers... but it is starting to grow fuzzy and eventually will pill as well. I don’t know could it be that the fibers that are being used are just two short?m glad it’s just gloves, I would hate myself if I put all that money into a sweater.

Made a complicated cable sweater with this yarn. It is very soft BUT I have worn it twice and the piling was incredibly bad....horrible in fact. I am so, so very disappointed. It was a lot of work and I cannot even wear it outside my house.

I used to love this yarn. But now i cannot find a color that i would spend the time knitting. E

I spent $90+ on yarn for a sweater for myself, the yarn started pilling almost immediately and makes the sweater look sloppy. I'm finishing the sweater, but I have a feeling that it will sit in my closet and never be worn due to extreme pilling. would strongly recommend against buying this for a large project.

As other reviewers have stated you missed the boat with the colours. Why so drab & why so few choices? I feel most of your new colours in most of the yarn lines are a fail. You definitely need to add more choices or bring back some of the old ones. These won’t do.
