I found this yarn thinner than other baby sport yarns I have used, it is more like a #2 baby yarn than a #3 (baby) sport weight. It makes nice soft lightweight baby sweaters for maybe late spring wear but be careful to watch the gauge as it may not be suitable for a pattern that needs a sport weight. If you want a heavier winter baby sweater or blanket this might not be heavy enough. I can't say it is "bad" yarn, just much thinner than I expected and I could not use it for the pattern I had in mind. The skein is big enough that I made a different baby sweater, bonnet and booties from one skein, 6 month size, so it is a good value.
