"Knits up very smoothly"
"Very nice yarn but a tad pricey. It wouldn't have been bad if the hat only used one skein but I had to buy two for this hat. " -- Karen
"I like this yarn a lot. It’s soft and easy to knit with. There are some things I did not like about it. It is weak, this goes against the Knitters Review opinion. It broke very easily. Especially when seaming. It would just pull apart as I tugged at it to tighten up my mattress stitch. VERY FRUSTRATING. Otherwise, it’s a lot of fun. I mentioned this before, I am afraid that it won’t hold up to the wear of time. Stay tuned." -- Bookish Girl
"My biggest issue is with the fact that the bag isn't as firm and sturdy as I hoped it would be. Most other felted bags I have seen are extremely sturdy and stand up nice and straight. This bag wilts over and becomes deformed once I put it down." -- Dani, Knitting Sunshine
