This is just about my favorite of the less expensive yarns. It is very soft but knits up into a fabric that takes a lot of wear. The variegated version of this yarn is quite interesting, changing colors about every two inches. The patterns made by the color changes vary from lightning bolt to knothole effects to diagonal stripes. This is great feeling, great looking yarn that will be used to make many pairs of socks for my family.
