My Thoughts: I've knit with both the fingering and worsted versions of Domestic, and I love that they're soft, but really sturdy. Like the fingering version, this one has lots of tightly-twisted plies, so it's very bouncy and durable, with super crisp stitch definition. The fabric is cohesive, smooth, and very weighty.
What I might design with it: I'm thinking a cardigan with a colorwork yoke. I think it'll make a long-lasting sweater and that color just glows!
UPDATE: I published Dissent, a cardigan pattern, in this yarn.
