I used this yarn to knit a baby hat and mittens. The yarn feels nice in my hands and the stitch definition was wonderful. No problems with yarn splitting at all. The fabric was warm and stretchy, but not too stretchy so the garments hold shape nicely. I just purchased more to make another hat and mittens!
