I used the pink/mauve/beige colorway in a simple garter stitch shawl. It is beautiful and I get a lot of compliments whenever I wear the shawl. I bought my yarn at the store. I am so glad that it is now online because I have wanted to use it again, I have only washed my shawl once. It did soften up somewhat with washing but not enough for next-to-skin wear. I generally my shawls in the winter over a blouse or shirt so it has not been a concern for me.

I bought this yarn because of the color to knit socks. I was surprised at the coarse texture but not put off. I soon discovered that it has a very long color repeat which may be an advantage for larger objects but does not work a well for samller items like socks. I ended up with one green sock and one purple sock due to the repeat length. While I'm not bothered by this, you may be if you prefer symmetry.

My biggest complaint came when I ran into a knot. While trying to find a similar color in the transition to continue, I disovered that the transition beyond the knot was running in the opposite direction. I consequently had to begin unwinding the ball from the opposite end to find a color match and get the colors running in the correct direction. This lack of care on the part of the manufacturer is annoying and cost this yarn one star. It is why I called the yarn "user unfriendly".

    • I'm Making A Sweater

    Comments about Kauni Effekt:

    I'm trying a Danish sweater pattern that calls for this yarn and I've never done Norwegian knitting with both hands at the same time. I'm enjoying the process and learning which hand needs to be used for prominence in the stitch but the yarn works wonderfully with it so far and it feeds evenly from the skein. At first I thought it felt coarse but a few rows later, I liked how soft it felt in my hands and it made my hands soft; lanolin? I'm not finished with the sweater yet so I can't answer how it launders or wears but so far, I like it.

    Pros

    • Dyed Evenly
    • Good Length Of Varigation

    Cons

    • Coarse
    • Many Weak Spots In Yarn
    • Varigated Yarn Weights

    Best Uses

    • Shawl

    Comments about Kauni Effekt:

    I loved the length of the variegated colors which worked wonderful in the shawl I did. Only complaint is that the yarn had many week spots which I had to cut the yarn and start again in order to make sure of the stability of the shawl. The yarn was coarse so I used a second yarn type that was much softer to compensate for the coarseness of the kauni yarn used. Anything close to the neck I used the softer yarn.

      I'm always anxious for my yarn shipment but WEBS delivery is always faster than I think possible. I'm happy with the very knowledgeable, pleasant, helpful customer service. Can't wait for the next project and yarn from WEBS.

          Comments about Kauni Effekt:

          The long slow color variations lend themselves to using two different balls at once. I used reds and gray/black. It is so much fun to watch the colors change and interact as you knit. The texture is a little rough, but the colors are magical.

                      really feels scratchy in the ball. Also sticks to itself nicely so that the odd dropped stitch does not travel anywhere. Have not yet finished and blocked my shawl. However, did frog and restart a considerable portion and when that frogged yarn was briefly washed it did soften and bloom nicely. Love the blended colors. I have a good hair conditioner in mind should I need it.
