      Comments about TSCArtyarns Zara Hand-Dyed:

      Very soft, colorful yarn full of bounce. However, shortly after winding one skein the yarn was cut. This produced a three gram length, with no obvious other "end" to pick up to continue with the widing. I had to hand wind the remaining which was horribly tangled. I suspect it was improperly removed from the skeining device, whereupon it was weighed only to be found light -- which is when the three gram segment was added. I find this unsatisfactory at this level, hence the three stars.

            Comments about TSCArtyarns Zara Hand-Dyed:

            Bought this for the October 2013 Artyarns Vest/jacket KAL. So far I am happy with the results - yarn seemed very forgiving when I ripped down to fix mistakes on earlier rows and knitted back up - cannot see where I made the corrections. Ply strands do tend to separate a little at times, but so far has not been a problem. Color is lovely. Right now, I would definitely use again, but as the project is still a work in progress, I have no idea how it will block, wear, or wash.

            Am using Zara for the Multi-Directional Sideways Scarf Knit-a-long. It is so very easy to work with, creates a soft, supple fabric and the colors are clear and bright. A perfect DK weight. Will definitely use again.
