It kind of looks like it was spun with cat hair because of the angora. I didn't notice it while I was converting the first skein to a ball, but it was very noticeable once I started knitting and I blamed my Siamese cat. By the 2nd skein, I realized it wasnt his fault.

I recommend using circular needles, even if you are knitting flat pieces, because it is quite slippery and if you are knitting and travelling, it's likely to slip off the needles.

I am knitting the Berocco Panamint shell in Isla Del Sol colour, which is about 2x darker than pictured.

I am working on a top down tee. The yarn feels good, but I am having trouble keeping a consistent gauge. I keep moving up a one needle size since I started the knitting, even though I did made a good swatch before I started. I am not sure this would work for cables, since I am not seeing much definition. Since it is a chainette, it is a good idea to knot the tip of the working strand so it does not ravel with handling.. I think it will be very soft and comfortable to wear. I think this yarn might make great camisoles for wear under winter weight garments also.

    Comments about Berroco Maya:

    Currently working on a baby blanket and this cotton is light, bouncy and soft to the touch. Has wonderful gauge and will be using again to substitute for a very expensive chained summer linen yarn.

      Comments about Berroco Maya:

      I am making a shawl with this yarn in three colors, not sure if 3 skeins will be enough. The pattern calls for a different yarn, 2 skeins each of 3 colors. So far it is looking very nice.

              Comments about Berroco Maya:

              I have a lovely pattern for a sweater and didn't know what kind of yarn I wanted to use to make it.
              I was with a friend and she was using Maya yarn in this wonderful shade of light purple. (#5650) And without either of us knowing it was making the sweater I was planning on making!!! I found it on line and purchased it. I have found that I really love the color and texture of the yarn. I am disappointed that I found little pulls in the yarn as I opened it. And, although I am carefull while knitting, I do fine it will pull every once and a while. With that said....it is a wonderfully solf sweater and I can't wait to finish it and wear it! It is pulling because of the kind of yarn it is and I have never used anything like it before. Because of the little pulls I almost returned it....I am glad I didn't.!
