I wanted to make a cardigan but the runs of self striping included WAY too long runs of only creme. From the picture, I thought the colors were more "symetrical" throughout the skein. I've had to cut and join many times to cut out some of the creme. Other than that, it's beautiful yarn, very soft, easy to work with, and good colorways. It's just not quite what I had wanted.
This yarn is so pretty and soft to the touch. I used FOUR different colors for mittens/hats for family members for Christmas (075 Black, Purple, Navy: 211 Natural, Purple, Brown: 422 Grey, Blue: 910 Green, Blue, Purple.) All of them were beautiful and knit up quickly. I used them for mittens and hats, and I loved the 211 color so much that I just ordered some more to make myself something special. :) The only negative I had with this yarn was that I got distracted on one of my hats and made some mistakes I had to take out, and the yarn was difficult to rip out to fix the issues. (It stuck together, which makes it really warm, but not very helpful when trying to correct mistakes.) It comes with 350yds per hank which was awesome.. I was able to make two hats and a set of mittens per hank. Definitely worth the purchase!
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
