I'm finding Panda yarn to be comfortable to wear but difficult to knit. The color of this pair is called sable and it doesn't feel at all like the last socks I made (picnic). This yarn feels more like rayon and besides splitting it also had a tendency to slide off the needle when I was trying to reunite strands that belonged together. Consequently, they took longer to complete. I really like the color and think they will be comfortable to wear, but I really had to pay attention while working on them.
