I was pleasantly surprised! It is a lovely soft, squishy yarn...and I love that it is just as bright, colorful, and fun as the photo!! I tend to get a lot of the same dark colors, but decided that I needed this yarn to make something fun and bright and playful to wear this summer!! Now to choose a pattern!!
