      This product is NOT sport. Nor is it best "worked as sport weight." Even if you take fuzz factor into account, it's still just a heavy fingering. I had to size down my needles -which I NEVER do- and its still too airy of a knit. Not to mention, people who might crochet can not "work as sport weight" because it would cause giant holes working with a hook that size. I love the yarn, but please fix the size.

      Knitted the revel modular shawl pattern...colors are beautiful....but as I was knitting in several spots, the yarn just disintegrated...it was always in the same color spot (I was using the grape mist?), so I thought that maybe it had something to do with the dye process, but I see other reviewers with the same problem. Much better yarns out there, in my opinion, and I will not use again. Too bad..I was initially very excited with it.

                My daughter gave me a skein of this yarn and am currently making a scarf with it. I like everything about this yarn so much that I ordered two skeins to make a spring shawl. It does not pick my skin like a lot of yarn does

                  Softer than mohair, the brushed alpaca is luxurous. I made a diagonal scarf for a gift that was whisper light. The color changes added interest to a simple pattern showing diagonal stripes.

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Revel:

                  Poor memory so poor shape retention when used by itself. Makes a great addition to knit or weave with other stronger yarn. Definitely lace weight and not sport weight as advertised.

                    I am alternating two colorways in a large cowl. This yarn is just beautiful....in the mix of color, softness, durability, stitch definition...it has it all! I am an experienced knitter and I had a devil of a time casting on due to the twist in the yarn. Otherwise, I would recommend this product from Plymouth.

                              Plan on knitting up a Noro project, we will see how it comes out.. so far doing a test swatch on 3.5mm needles, getting 6 st to 1 " gauge..

                              Sadly, yarn broke when casting on,so I'm knitting very light handed to not stress the wool too much

                              delivery was to Canada, used standard US post, arrived in 1 week! I was very surprised, this was my first order.. I will definitely order again!

                              This yarn is listed as a sport weight.
                              Going by wraps per inch it is a light fingering at best.
