Sheep(ish) Yarn

So my aunt requested a scarf, and we all went to Joann to look for yarns. She chose Sheep(ish) Yarn. I barely looked at it before we purchased it... and then I started knitting with it. It's the oddest yarn I've encountered, in that it has no distinct plies. Sadly, that means I have to pay more attention so that I don't split the yarn (although the pattern itself requires some concentration). But even while looking at it, I often split the yarn... shhh ;) And for some reason, when I knit, the yarn "sheds" into a little ring of fuzz around the yarn. This problem is aggravated with this yarn... no biggie, I just snip it off. But aside from the yarn itself, it produces wonderful stuff :)
