The colours are real nice and I'm sure knitting might work better than crochet. I am crocheting a babies blanket with soft pastel colours. This yarn is very disappointing for crochet. It splits all the time and I find I have little tufts sticking out all over my crochet work. Such a shame. I think it has been too loosely plied. It might work better for knitting. Not sure I would use this again.
