Really - I think you need to call this yarn iconic at this point. You either love it or you hate it but everybody's got an opinion. The original hedgehog pattern set it off but King Cole have added and added and made a right little niche corner of the market. My favourite things to make with it are anything Christmas-y (including just wrapping it around my tree as tinsel) and the dragons. Other people have made all sorts of things, including garments but mostly accessories, art and a bit of homeware. It is very sparkly!
