I use this yarn for easy scarves and my standby, the La-La Simple Shawl. I live in the Southern US, but cotton yarn usually hurts my hands. This doesn't. I also like Cascade Tangier, but it sheds like a llama. This doesn't. Others complain about splitting and breaking, but I've never had that problem. Part of the reason is probably that I always use at least a #9 needle with it for an open look AND I don't go for remotely complex patterns on shawls or scarves. The twisting is not as much of a problem if I wind with a swift and ball winder and pull from the center. Even so, there are MANY yarns a lot twistier, so I don't mind this.

I received 2 skeins in a 'mystery' bag and purchased a third to complete the shrug I was making. All three skeins had the same problems. Thickness is listed as Worsted but ran from lace to roving and I frequently had issues with it pulling apart forcing me to rip out stitches to weave in new ends. It twisted up frequently no matter what I tried to prevent it. I also found pieces of hay throughout all three skeins, some as long as a 1/4". As most of the pieces had clearly been dyed it wasn't a case of picking it up from a display setting. This was the worst yarn I've ever worked with.

      Yarn Pulling Apart

      By BaubleBin

      • Good Weight
      • Knits Quickly

      Cons

      • Socks

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

      I knit socks
      Love the colours
      The yarn shreds and pulls apart as I'm knitting
      Some of the strands are reduced to the circumference of a very fine thread and I fear my socks will let loose and break out in holes. The yarn is unstable. Though I just ordered 5 more balls of the yarn a few days ago, the 2 balls I've worked with since placing my order are problematic and I will not use or order anymore of this yarn.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

                I adore self-striping yarns, but often the color repeats aren't long enough to look well crocheted, only knitted. This worked up great as a crocheted scarf/shawl. Also, as someone who can't work with animal fibers, I loved that it doesn't contain wool or other animal fibers.

                This yarn is delightful! The colors are fun and I love the fiber content. It does twist up a bit, but I think that's part of the charm for this yarn, since it looks hand spun. I ordered twice and was able to receive the same dye lot. The shipping is smoking fast so my project wasn't delayed. Excellent service all the way!

                  I love the colorations in this yarn, however, the stretches of some of the colors are so long that you get large areas of "pooling" , I wish the color stretches were even in length. It is nice and soft. My only strong dislike is the way the yarn twists up, so that I have to spend time trying to untwist sections so I can continue. I understand that this is caused by the way the manufacturer spins it. It seems to be opposite to the way most other yarn is spun. Bottom line, I like this yarn for the coloration and its softness.

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

                  Since this is a single ply yarn, it tends to untwist, causing it to fall apart. I had to knit carefully and tried to add back the twist when I thought about it. Other than that, it's exactly what I was looking for. I live in the desert and am on the lookout constantly for yarns that won't be too warm when knitted up. This one fits the bill.
