      I bought three hanks of this yarn. Spring Tickle and In Vino Veritas are great colors - rich and true to web site. But I was disappointed with ChinaTown Apple - it looks rather like a rotten apple and not as shown on the web site. However, I have done a bit of wool dyeing myself and know how difficult it is to replicate a good batch. ChinaTown Apple will suit someone, I am sure. I plan to use all this yarn for socks, my family love them.

      I'm knitting socks with two different skeins and colour ways of this yarn, and am having two very different experiences. The Cocoa Kiss skein is knitting up beautifully and looks like it will become lovely socks. In contrast, I've just wound and cast on a pair using Visual Purple. The yarn had 4 breaks in it that I discovered while winding (not an issue I've ever had in the past), and seems to be unevenly and loosely spun. I doubt I will actually knit these socks with this yarn, and am unsure what sort of project it would be better for. I am really disappointed by this skein, and it will make me think twice before ordering dream in color again. If australia had somewhere that I could look at and feel the yarn before purchasing I might consider it again but not for buying online.

      Comments about Dream in Color Smooshy:

      Generous skeins and beautifully dyed, my only complaint is that I need to reinforce the heels and toes of socks made with this yarn. I love the yarn for scarves, hats and sweaters especially sweaters for children, as it is machine washable. It is one of my favorites, just not for socks.

            While I understand that handpainted will have variations, the skein I ordered was an ugly, muddy, mess that bore no relation to the colours in the photo.

                  Comments about Dream in Color Smooshy:

                  I ordered one skein of this yarn for socks in Cloud Jungle because someone had mentioned that it goes well with jeans. When it was delivered, I ordered a second skein because I decided to knit a shawl instead of socks. Colors are a very subtle transition of muted shades of blue, olive green and an unidentifiable shade of red that could be anything from rose to terracotta. Actual weight of the ball I wound is 112 grams (most yarn seems to weigh two grams less than stated on the labels; this weighs 12 grams more). Winding from swift to ball winder hit a few snags that required more patience than usual, but it was doable. This yarn feels more coarse to the touch than any other merino I have used; I seldom use any fiber other than merino. I just hope it turns out to be as itch-free as other merinos, although as a shawl I can make sure it doesn't touch my skin. If it turns out to be itch-free, I'll order another skein for socks.

                            Beautiful color variations within the yarn, without causing landscaping in the piece. I had dissapointment when one of the same dye lot skeins was quite different from the other two I was using.
