It is delightful to "feel" as it slips through my fingers. Nice to look at, too! A soft luster. However, I have to watch carefully for "splits"! I double back and fix splits everytime. They drive me bonkers. Tapesty is kinda split-prone...and especially so because I am using KnitPicks OPTIONS, which are pointy...but great for manipulating cables accurately and quickly! Everything is a trade-off!

I wanted to get two other colors, too...but...came to my senses!
As it is, I over-bought. Six skeins of each color. I had no idea how much yarn the cables would suck up...and I want the scarves to be 48" long. The shop owner said she would take back any unused skeins...so that is why I am getting on the ball and knitting the scarves now. Shops can't "take back" yarn that you've had for 6 months.
