Just wondering if anyone has used this yarn for cables - I have a bag, and a project in mind, but I wasn't sure how it would hold up to the cables as it seems a little slippery. Has anyone used it?

I've used it and like it very much. However, I haven't made anything with cables. I agree that it seems too slippery. Make a cable swatch, I guess, and see what you think. Maybe mix it with something a little less slippery? Also, it can be a little bit snaggy, so that might not be a good choice for a bag. Hope that helps.
