It was very entertaining to work with this yarn, the colours that come up are a constant surprise and the end product is STUNNING.

After reading the great reviews I purchased this yarn. I do not understand why the reviews are so great, my yarn was unraveling and had weird chunks where it looked felted/tangled? I am not sure how to describe it because this is a first for me, so I attached a photo. I tried to hide those areas in the cables, but it is still slightly noticeable. I also had a few small knots instead of a long continuous string of yarn. Is this common, I am fairly new to knitting, but I have not seen this before either. The color is beautiful, but I would not recommend it do to the irregularities. Maybe I just ordered a bad batch?

      This was my first attempt at a felted bowl, and it came out beautifully. I used 3 strands of worsted weight non-washable yarn together on #17 needles.

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Gina:

                  From the swatch, it looks like the color changes are going to knit up to be gradual for a more elegant look than some patterned yarns. The fabric of it is soft but not wimpy, and would make lovely cables.

                      After the yarn arrived, I was not so sure I liked until I knit with it. It is GREAT! The color changes are super and I used this yarn to knit and felt hats and they turned out fantastic. Very happy with the product and it was shipped to me quickly.

                      Made the Ojos de Dios shawl. Very impressed with the way it worked up. I liked it so much, I ordered another colorway to make a Reader's Wrap
                      Recommended the yarn to others. At least one of whom purchased the yarn.
