A Cautionary Tale

By Beth

from Coastal Oregon

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Very Nice Color Blending

Cons

  • Difficult To Add Beading

Best Uses

    Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Silk:

    This product has a lovely consistency in its color variation blending. However, there was a lot of random, non-specific fiber spun into the yarn: fibers which I had to pick out as I went along. I used a crocheted pattern of circles which made up beautifully and really showed up the color variations well (rather than showing as stripes).

      Wisdom Yarns Poems Silk

      By linslittlegirl

      from Connecticut

      Pros

      • Beautiful colors
      • Very soft

      Cons

      • Breaks easily
      • Thickness Varies
      • Too many knots
      • Twists Horribly

      Best Uses

        Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Silk:

        I love Poems Chunky and Poems Puzzle, and I assumed I'd love this, too. It's super soft, and the colors are a bit like Noro Silk Garden. I normally love roving-type yarns rather than plied yarns, but not this time. Poems Silky frequently gets very, very thin (way too tightly twisted) and then very bulky (almost completely untwisted). That would be fine if it was a thick/thin yarn, but it's not. There are lots of very fuzzy spots as you are knitting that you've got to remove, hopefully without pulling the yarn apart completely. Also, I came to many spots where the yarn was just broken then tied in knots. This is the first time I've ever said this, but I won't ever use this yarn again.
