Chose this in person to knit a sort-of log cabin blanket. It's knitting up beautifully, really squishy and soft. The tough part of buying yarn online is the color selection, so here goes: I have the 07 which I'd say is a medium shade of seafoam. It is more blue than green and very pretty. I also have 09, which is a strong teal or peacock color, also on the blue side. We were really nervous about how they'd go together in the blanket, but it's really great. Also have 27 Gray, and 20 Silver which are pretty much as shown.
In about 6 skeins knit so far, I've found one knot.

Beautiful, but disappointed

Beautiful yarn. However, I was disappointed to find it pill and fuzz horribly when machine drying on lowest setting, per the website instructions.

Beautiful yarn, too many knots

By Mimi

from Lebanon, PA

Pros

  • Easy To Knit
  • Good Color Choices
  • Soft

Cons

  • Knots

Best Uses

  • Baby Blankets
  • Hats
  • Mitts

I've used this yarn for several baby blankets. It knits up quickly and the finished blankets are soft and warm. My only complaint is with the knots. I'm on my fourth skein of the current blanket and each has had a knot. I forgot why I didn't use this yarn for the last blanket I made. Otherwise, this would be a favorite yarn.

Lovely to work with, but pills horribly when washef

By Moss candy

from Oakland, CA

Pros

  • Easy To Work With
  • Hides Mistakes
  • Lovely Sheen
  • Soft

Cons

  • Pills
  • Pills Horribly

Best Uses

    It's really too bad. I made a beautiful and intricate cabled vest with this yarn. I washed it according to the directions, blocked it and allowed it to dry flat. My finished product is virtually ruined by severe pilling. I an able to remove the pills with a sweater stone, but that fluffs the surface so it looks tired. Will try a sweater shaver on the remaining, but I am sorely disappointed.

    My favorite yarn

    By Nana Goodwich

    from Denver, CO

    Pros

    • Amazing Stitch Definition
    • Fast Projects
    • Luxurious To The Hand
    • No Pilling
    • Soft

    Cons

    • Absolutely None

    Best Uses

    • Blankets
    • Ponchos
    • Scarves
    • Sweaters

    Here I go again with another sweater with this amazing yarn. I just love the soft loft and lovely feel. Fun to work with. Love those bulky sweater projects for adults and children that fly off the needle. I recommend this for all knitters, even first projects as it does not pill, does not thread apart, and the fuzzy high grade wool tends to hide imperfections. Try it, you will be sold. Well worth the price.

    Amazing Yarn! No Pilling!

    By Briana

    from Columbia, SC

    Pros

    • Color
    • Easy to knit with
    • Soft
    • Squishy
    • Sturdy

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Blankets
      • Hats
      • Warm Weather Accessories

      I knit a hat with this yarn a while ago and had yet to wash and dry it. I read reviews on WEBS and on Ravelry that mentioned pilling so I was a little worried how it would hold up in the wash. Wow! After washing inside out on a warm cycle in a top loader there was literally one pill that I noticed; I dried the hat on a medium setting. The yarn held color and softness. I was inclined to wash my hat because I now need to make something for someone else and I do not want them to experience issues with their hand knit. I'm so excited that I can depend on this yarn. I still cannot get over how soft and squishy the yarn is, both before and after washing and drying! I also enjoy using Malabrigo Mecha as a bulky superwash but this is now one of my go-to bulky yarns, especially if I need a solid color!

      Beautiful product minus the knots!

      By DMD Knitter

      from South Orange, NJ

      I really enjoy knitting with this yarn but have consistently found a knot or two in each ball which is really disappointing for such little yardage. It is definitely not ideal when working on my projects. Perhaps that's why it was on sale? What a bummer

      I would buy this in every color

      By Amy a hooker of primitive rugs.

      from St Louis, Missouri

      This is the most wonderful 100% wool yarn! I ordered every color and use this yarn to whip the edges of my primitive rugs. The heathered yarns look so good and I am sad this yarn is discontinued!

        I love this yarn for baby blankets. I love that it can go in the washer and dryer and there are no man made fibers in it. I just wish there were more colors available.
