"The verdict? This just may be the yarn you didn’t know you were looking for, especially if you make garments. It’s a pleasure to crochet with, sliding smoothly over your hands and hook, and is wonderful for making next-to-the-skin soft projects. It has just enough body to hold lace stitches clearly while being soft enough to drape beautifully." M.K. Carroll, Things We Love (Knit Edge Magazine yarn review)
