Beautiful colors and fun to knit. But had 2 yarn breaks in one 100 gram ball and inconsistent yarn thickness. It's a center pull ball but using it from that end made it twirl and spin on itself so frogged it and used other end. It would be great if this were in a skein so I could wind it myself-- inconvenient to do from a ball.

Not sure if I would buy this again.

      Comments about Knitting Fever Painted Desert:

      This yarn was an excellent weight for the shawl I made. I used US#8 crochet hook on a corner to corner shawl. Lovely to work with soft yet sturdy. It didn't split or unravel, it was a pleasure to work with

          Best Uses

            Comments about Knitting Fever Painted Desert:

            I bought the yarn as I believed it was shades of blue, turquoise and purple. There is an element of orange in the gradient. It's not what I intended for my project, but I am using the yarn anyway.

            Aside from that, the yarn is nice to work with.

            I've been knitting "Bermuda" shawls, pattern on Ravelry. It's the perfect pattern to show off a perfect color gradient. Just love the hand of the knitted garment. Washes up well. Plan to buy more.

                                    The well-blended color transition, plus the long length of each change, is making quite an elegant looking Spectra Scarf by Stephen West. This yarn is quite soft. Can't wait to finish my scarf. It will be my donation to a Pancreatic Cancer
                                    fund raiser.
                                    Bought enough yarn for a hat too!
