        Be Careful

        By CroGirl

        from Franklin NC

        Pros

        • Good colors
        • Interesting texture

        Cons

        • Difficult to work with
        • Yarn Twists On Itself

        Best Uses

        • Simple Garter St Pattern

        I bought the Garter Lace Shawl pattern that uses this yarn and is rated as "easy". The stitches used would be easy with a regular lace weight yarn, but not with this yarn. It varies in weight from sewing thread to slubs that could be sport weight and that creates the difficulty in working the YO and K2tog that lace usually requires.

        Also as the yarn comes off the ball, it twists back on itself often creating tangles as well as great challenge. Beginners beware. The pattern is easy. Using this yarn is not. It would best be used in simple garter st. No fancy stitch patterns.

        Not a lace yarn

        By yarnaholic

        from Columbia, SC

        Pros

        • Great Colors

        Cons

        • Knots Easly

        Best Uses

        • Light Weight Scarves
        • Light Weight Shawls

        I bought this yarn to make exploded doily shawls and it will not work as planned. The colors are beautiful and bright, but this yarn is "cobweb" thin. As stated by others, it is not suited for true lace work. Possibly working it double (not sure of this with colors) or using a smaller size hook or needle would help.

        Nice but not suited for fine lace work

        By Stitchin' Karen

        from Okemos, MI

        Pros

        • Great Colors
        • Soft hand

        Cons

        • Center Pull Tangled
        • Rustic
        • Thick Thin

        Best Uses

        • Crochet
        • Freeform

        Using this yarn in combination with 10/2 tencel for a crochet-lace ruana. LOVE the color combinations and feel of the yarn. Big, long slubs difficult to accomodate in fine stitching. Great for rustic or freeform stitching, but feel slubs would cause havoc with fine lace work.

        Stunning summery yarn

        By lakshmivic

        from Victoria, BC

        Pros

        • Colourful
        • Colourful Amazingly Ligh
        • Colourful Light
        • Lightweight

        Cons

        • Stripes Can Be Limiting

        Best Uses

        • Scarves
        • Shawls

        This yarn is amazingly lightweight, considering the amount of cotton in it. Would be good for summer shawls and scarves. It has a lovely drape, superior to most wools in my opinion. You have to love bright, saturated colour to use this, and you have to choose a design (preferably, rather simple) that works well with stripes, because that's what you're going to get. The knitted texture is slightly rustic owing to the thick-and-thin nature of the yarn - again, another argument for choosing a simple pattern. I'm going back for more!
