Anyone got experience with 'oiled yarn'?

Lurking in my small but growing stash is some aran 'oiled yarn' called Troon Tweed from Texere Yarns in the north of England.

Tight Curling Stitches

I can't get past 3 rows. My stitches become tight as I approach the middle of my second or third rows and the rows start wrapping around the working needle like a stake around a branch.

Stupid Sweater Question

I've knitted hats, mittens and so on, and I want to knit a sweater. The heat in my office is laughable at best (came in one morning and it was under 50'F).
