I originally purchased this yarn to make a newborn blanket, which was a big hit. But the yarn was so soft and gorgeous, I ended up purchasing several more skeins to make scarves. The soft gray color is stunning, and versatile. The weight is a perfect chunky, and it is not stiff, even when you do a tight stitch! I only wish they made it in more colors!
This yarn is really soft, even softer than the 'regular' Softee chunky yarn. The color and shine of the yarn makes it really beautiful. I knocked off three stars, however, for two reasons: the yarn separates easily so with less experience, it can be a pain to work with. The main reason I'm unhappy with this yarn though, is that it has fluff from different colors woven into its fabric at regular intervals. When I came across the first one, I didn't mind it so much, because it was just a small amount of light green that wasn't very visible, but later there were a number of bright pink patches that really stand out and now I feel like I have to undo the whole project and use the yarn as scraps for smaller projects (or cut out the colored parts and deal with the annoyance of having to stop all the time.) Such a pity, because the yarn is soft and pretty. This was going to be for a baby boy, so bright pink pops in a really unwelcome way.
Perfect yarn for a baby blanket! Leaves a little bit of fuzz on you while knitting. Haven't tried machine washing yet. I ordered more in other colors.
