I couldn't resist this yarn when it came into the shop as it was so soft and silky. I also liked the fact that it is biodegradable and compostable as I am aware of the environmental impact of acrylic yarns, and how great to be able to say " Feel this yarn, it's made from wood!". It is great to work with, smooth and soft and knits up easily - I did use wooden needles as I felt it was a bit too slippery on my usual KnitPro Zing. The colours look lovely, and all follow the same soft palette so they all work very well together. 5/5 from me!
