      This "yarn" is awesome to knit with I Loom Knit off and on, and my daughters only loom, they wanted this scarf the minute they saw it, but I wanted something that they could knit on the looms, after I did the first one to teach them they have made several for themselves and bff's. One of my girls has even begun a hat with this yarn on her loom. It is a bit pricy for the yarnage, however many of their scarfs have only been one skein that they are giving to friends, however for their own scarfs they use 1 and a half skeins, and the hat my youngest is working on will be two skeins, but since they are wearing them and knitting them I consider it money well spent.

      Very important to measure skein BEFORE you begin any project. Skein does not match yardage that is shown on label. (may be pieced together to make up yardage.) This will effect project that is supposed to be made continuously with one skein. Also note that you are being shorted yardage on each skein by at least 1 and 2/3 yds. Some skeins even more. I was told by customer svs that they cAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT QUALITY CONTROL BECAUSE product is made in Turkey as the label states. No one has rectified my problem as yet, but they did send me this survey. I have purchased 6 skeins as of this date and each skein is short by atleast 1 and 2/3 yds and I believe something should be done about it. It is wrong to sell under such conditions. One project turns out to be shorter than the one before it and it really matters. I have had to adjust all measurements according to what the skein actually measures. lI love the yarn, I'm just not happy with how yardage is computed.

              The placing of the order is easy, the service is very fast, and the price is great. I love the discount for ordering over a certain amount. This is my favorite place to now shop as the stitchery store in our town does not carry all the colors. Until I found your website, I had no idea there were other colors available in the Tinseltown. My red scarves were worn on July 4th in Washington, DC at my International Sorority Convention. They were a big hit. I love this site, and will frequent it often. PS, I called to make sure I had ordered correctly, and talked with the nicest lady. It doesn't get any better than this!!

                            Tinseltown knits into a beautiful glamour scarf. I saw a friend knitting them and ordered the yarn to start knitting again after 60 years. I am having such fun & am finishing my 4 th scarf.
                            All of the ladies in my family selected colors for scarves for Christmas.

                              Beautiful scarfs that add sparkle to suits and winter coats. It is quick and fast to work with. The price is very reasonable when you compare the finished product in the department stores and they have a better quality of yarn when finally made. I did not receive compensation for this review.

                              Tinseltown used to make lovely scarves. Comes in many lovely collars. Only disappointment was that occasionally a skein would not be all in one piece the two pieces could easily be spliced into the knitting.
                              Also, occasionally the ribbon in a skein was quite wrinkled, but when I rolled the skein into a ball and let me sit for many days, it tended to iron out.

                                  Looked beautiful and I was anxious to make a scarf. However, when I began to unfold the yard from the skein, there were numerous sections where the tinsel was entangled upon itself, and the yarn was folded over and crinkled. I tried straightening it out and lightly steaming it, but only to find more crinkled sections further into the skein. I ended up returning the product as not useable for me.
