Rather disappointing. It is plied loosely, so it keeps splitting. I have to take stitches out repeatedly. I'm putting I-cord edging on a jacket, and the splitting gets really annoying. I have had to tink and re-knit.

Love this yarn!! I bought 20 skeins for the Blocks and Ribs throw. Only used 10 for the throw, so am making a second for myself! I have not had it split at all. And it is makes a comfy, cozy blanket! I would not want to make it during the summer, though!

This is a nice quality Aran or Heavy Worsted Weight yarn. Definitely not the equivalent of the Wool of the Andes Bulky yarn.

I have now knit two Log Cabin blankets out of this. With my 20+ years knitting experience I will say this does split but I've dealt with much much worse. If you're looking for super super soft wool, this is not the best choice. But if you're looking for warm and durable then this is great. The fact that it was a good durable yarn and superwash was what sold me on it. I like the colors a lot but I'm hoping they expand the colors.

I personally found this yarn easy to work with, but not the coziest (in other words, softest), and I did notice it had a tendency to split at times. I was still able to make a very nice baby blanket with it, however, and I like that it's Superwash - a good feature to have for a baby blanket!
