      This yarn is beautiful, but I haven't been able to use it yet. I haven't found a pattern that I think this yarn deserves.

            Purchased the earth tones shade. Disappointed in the colors: a very brash blue dominates the tans -- unlike the photo. Not sure what I will do with this yarn. It isn't worth returning and it looks too "cheap" to use. Sorry for the poor rating.

                I've used just about all the colors available in Aventisto, using double strands in Entrelac. The colors change nicely to give the perfect Entrelac effect. Makes great, unique gifts.

                  Comments about SMC Aventisto:

                  I've made six or eight Entrelac neck warmers with nearly the complete range of available colors. I decided that the yarn was too thin to knit singly so I used double yarn on all scarves. This made for a really interesting development of colors. Having finished the first one, I thought that the scarf was rather stiff, but after I washed and blocked it, it became quite supple.

                  Comments about SMC Aventisto:

                  I meant Aventisto for a scarf but it's too much like fingering yarn. I may knit with two strands together to get more body.
