I must say, I love it. It is so soft to work with, doesn’t split, was consistent, and I didn’t encounter any joins (a pet peeve).

The biggest love for this yarn comes when I say it is an S twist, “oh no” I hear the crocheters cry, “It’ll unspin while you work”, let me tell you IT DID NOT, now with most yarns being made with knitting in mind I am used to the unspinning nature of some S twist yarns and keep a watchful eye on the yarn as I work so I can correct any unspin as I go, but the Snuggly behaved like a champ and didn’t come unspun.

As for the softness, this yarn is lovely, so lovely that The Clone said she might even wear a hat made from it in the winter, this is the child that has 10+ winter hats and never wears a one (Geek Girl likes to wear them in June).

I put the Spiral Beanie in with my normal daily wash, 40 degrees, quick wash, 1200 spin (I am lazy when it come to laundry) and it’s fine, no piling, no stretching and, the colour is fast.

All in all, I can not recommend this yarn enough and may very well be using it in an upcoming sweater pattern.
