I made the large version of Sophieās Universe with this yarn, and love the muted, elegant colors. It does pill a bit, though, and in fact my afghan already looked a bit fuzzy and āpillyā by the time I finished it. Also, be very careful if you have pets: This yarn attracts pet hair like crazy, and it gets entwined in it immediately, so that the animal hair becomes a permanent part of your work.
