I love this yarn!
I'm a pretty beginner knitter and an intermediate crocheter, and this yarn works well for all my current projects - I predominantly make amigurumi (plush crochet toys) and garments for myself. It's stretchy, which makes it quite forgiving when figuring out my gauge, the colours are vivid and work well together. It's easy to wash and soft to the touch. And it's pretty cheap for the quality, so if you're looking for a step up from crafts store yarns (looking at you, Michaels) and want to experiment with merino, I think it's a great yarn to try! I'm slowly graduating and looking at more fancy yarns, but I always keep some Sugar Bush Crisp in my stash.
I also specifically prefer the DK weight from Sugar Bush, I've tried the worsted weight for a few projects and it was much more prone to splitting and less forgiving.
