My Thoughts: This yarn was so smooth it felt like water! It drapes like silk and is incredibly soft! And the color is so complex and gorgeous. If you're into the softest soft you can get, this is it. I haven't subjected it to wear yet, but due to that extreme softness, my guess is that this one will pill a bit. If you're thinking of making a sweater with it, I'd do one with as much structure as possible - worked in pieces, then seamed. Also have to give a shout-out to Bristol Ivy, the designer who curated this yarn. If you're not familiar with the Yarn Collective project, it's super interesting!
What I might design with it: It's so pretty in Stockinette, I kind of just want a big Stockinette rectangle to wrap around my body, but I'll probably do something slightly more adventurous than that - maybe a wrap worked on the bias?
