The yarn was hand dyed with madder, and I loved seeing the information about it. The texture is smooth, and the yarn has a good heft to it so I can do a quick, satisfying project.
Also, the yarns smell good. There's a pleasant bright, earthy, clean smell to the DGY yarns that come in these boxes.
The yarns are well constructed in interesting color combos. I got sparkly lace weight silk yarn in watercolor once and fell in love with it. The most recent yarn was dyed with madder and came out a lovely dusty rose.
Each yarn comes with a backstory and some additional tidbits, and the yarns are always a surprise.
