I am really liking this yarn. It does feel closer to a sport weight than to DK - with 4mm needles I get 23 stsx32 rows, which is slightly denser than the tension indicated on the label, but I am happy with the resulting fabric. It keeps the shine when knitted up, and also a slight halo. It has good stitch definition while being drapey, though I can imagine that a loser tension might lose the definition a bit. I have bought dress quantities of this, as Wensledayle is a tough fibre that won't fear wear at the seat, in three different colour ways, and I have to say that in real life they look even better than in the picture - however photos are pretty close to the actual colour (I can vouch for Amber, Granite and Moonstone). The 100g hank goes a long way, so perfect for garment knitting. I will buy this again, though I have to use all my stash first :-)

Only tried this for crochet and found that I had to be careful that the yarn didn't split. Wouldn't buy it again for crochet.
