i was thinking of buying some in that big sale that's on, for a particular project.

but i've never seen it in real life and am leery over how soft/ not soft it is.

can anyone tell me?

i have used this for a hat and a pair of mittens.  i seem to have an extremely sensitive forehead (it itches easily), and this yarn doesn't itch.  it gets more fuzzy and softer with use.  as far as softness, not the softest yarn EVER, but it is soft enough for me. just bought some of this for a new sweater. definitely a yarn i would use again, imo.

i just bought a bunch of it at the yarn sale you alluded too, i've never seen it in person so this was a good thread to find. I'm hoping its not too terribly fuzzy, i prefer smoother yarns, but at that price i'm sure i'll find plenty to do with it

I bought some of this from the knithappens sale too. I'm bit a worried though since people are saying that its a bit fuzzy and I was planning to make the cable down raglan. Does this yarn have enough stitch defination for cables or is it better suited for something else?

I was wondering how it would work for cables too, irishelf.  I haven't used it, but I think it's a single ply yarn.  Things I've read have suggested plyed yarns for good cable definition, but I'm not sure why.  I'm sure it would work fine, but the cables might not pop as much as they would with a different yarn.

I just got mine, and it is a single ply yarn, adriennec.  Its also pretty soft.  I suppose I should just make a swatch to see how it knits up, but that would require effort  Tongue
