I've been working with that yarn. I'm making a felted bag with it now, and look forward to making a sweater out of it in the future. Not as soft as the luxury yarns of course, but I had a couple of friends "test feel" it, before putting a luxury yarn in their hands, and they said it felt fine and soft enough for a sweater. I wouldn't risk a turtleneck with it, since I like only the softest wool on my neck, but I would do any other type of sweater with it. It's nice yarn, and good to work with.
