I've made 2 blankets with Silk Garden, and yes, I had to pick out bits, but I've done that with other yarn, too.
To be honest, when I've touched it and Kuryeon in the past, I wasn't thrilled, even though I was drawn to the colors.
After I got some on sale, I was hooked. It's not the softest in the world, obviously, but I like the feel of the blankets, and plan to knit a sweater with it. I wouldn't want it against my skin, but not all wool is soft, I guess. :shrug:
