I loved this yarn also to knit with. My husband's chocolate brown sweater turned out beautiful and fit better than anything I ever did for him! However, the sweater is now 2 years old and the yarn has relaxed to the point that I just cut 2 out of each side and raised the shoulder seams. The ribbing is flat with no stretch. I bought some red for a sweater for myself and will definitely knit a smaller size than usual.
I loved working with this yarn. It seemed to bloom some as I was working with it, so it's extremely soft to the touch after it's knit up. I knit a baby sweater and hat I know, I know. I used this $$$$ yarn for a baby garment?? but it's for a special occasion, and I wanted it to be beautiful. The color of the hand dye is exceptional. Some variation, but not stripey. I ordered 2 skeins and they matched really well in color. My next project with this yarn will be a sweater for me, because it really is a yarn for grownups.
