This definitely exceeded expectations - it was twice as nice as expected. I hadn't read the product description properly and the ball was 50 grams, not 25. As the main project for which it is intended may use just a shade more than 25 grams, at least in my inexpert hands, this is perfect. The colour is also exactly what I wanted, almost black but more complex than a straight dyed black.
