I really like chainette yarns, but a lot are heavier weights. I would say this one leans to the lighter worsted side, so works great w/the crochet shell shrug pattern I've got. It's soft and a bit squishy with good stitch definition and no splitting. Luv the alpaca w/the cotton. Haven't washed it yet, but that's an added bonus! Wish I could get some in every color & JB's was so good about helping me get the right color, the Vanilla Flower, which is not a stark white at all and also not ivory, but a more muted white.
This is an excellent quality yarn which knits up well and drapes beautifully. There were no knots or joins in the 8 skeins purchased. Handles and feels like a more expensive yarn. There is a huge range of colors to choose from and I would certainly use it again.
