I was just wondering what other feedback would be on this yarn. It is not that cheap and I thought I would be very satisfied with it.

I used it to make a cardigan for my husband. While it looks classy, I noticed that there is a little bit of diagonal misalighnment (it happens with yarn which is too tightly woven). I hope washing and straightening the cardigan parts will fix it.

I also noticed a fair bit of splitting. I had to watch it carefully all the time!

Also, several balls had more than one knot - sometimes as many as 4 per ball. I thought good yarn, especially in a ball of 50 g should not have anything like it.

I don't think I would pick it again, and I would rate it as 6 on a 10-point scale.

I just wanted to add that I have washed the parts of the cardigan with the following results: though it stretches terribly when whet, it dries back to the original shape. Diagonal misalightment also disappears.
