I like this yarn.  2 of the 3 fibers are very renewable. It’s got a nice soft feel and it’s a very smooth knit.  I’m not very far into my first project with this yarn, but so far it’s been a good knit.  There is no splitting in the yarn and it creates a nice flat fabric.  I’m sure once I get further in the piece will have a lovely drape.

I am using one of the darker colors – Morgan Green.  And I did notice that there was some dye on my fingers.  So I would suggest care in wetting and washing as there will be some bleeding.  And that is my only complaint.
