This flat yarn is created by taking cotton and wrapping it with polyamide. The contrast created by the slight difference in color and sheen of the two fibers just stunning. Gedifra Amara is great for both garments and accessories! Made in Italy.
I loved this yarn. I made 4 sweaters with it. I found, however, that the Mandarin did not go as far as the Khaki in yardage. I then found that the Yellow/Green skeins were full of pieces knotted together or just wound together so that I kept ending up with 3 or more pieces making up a skein. I was very disappointed and would not purchase Amara again. I think WEBS should avoid selling products that have defects like those I encountered.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Bought this in two colors. Easy to knit, but a little stiff. If drape isn't a concern, I would highly recommend this yarn. I purchased it for open weave summer sweaters. Because it's a little stiff, it won't stretch out like so many other summer yarns do on open weave summer sweaters.
