I have orderde a large amount over the years of this yarn. and even though you say in some reviews its scratch its not really. being mom is a crocheter it crochets just like a worsted and as you use it as you should know it softens up as you touch the product over time with the oils in your fingers and skin to soften it more. Its an a excellant yarn. and we will always use more in the fututre.

Glad you had another sale! Purchased a different color that is just as pictured (blossom Heather). Especially soft after wash with kookaburra special wool wash. White hit chocolate coat is looking good! (In pink)0

This yarn is NOT suitable FOR BABY items ! I purchased this yarn relying on reviews of several costumers that prized this yarn as soft and good for baby blankets - it is not. It is scratchy and stiff and I will have to return my order. I would not use it for adult items that touch the skin either. Colors are beautiful though, and I do not mind it not being really worsted weight, but most people might.

I bought the color Columbine which is a beautiful purple but it is NOT soft at all & it twists on itself so every few inches I have to stop & straighten out a few more inches. I would not buy this yarn again. I’ve had good luck with all the other yarn I bought at Knit Picks.

I purchased this yarn, based on the reviews, to knit a baby blanket. I'm finding the yarn 'scratchy and rough'. not soft as described in the review I had read. I am hoping it wash nicely before I post it for sale. I don't think I'll be inclined to purchase more.
