      I was disappointed to see that the color variation was created by knotting the different colors together. I don't consider this yarn to be inexpensive, and was really disappointed that the color variation was not created by dyeing a single strand of yarn. Cute as it is, I won't buy it again for this reason.

            I bought enough yarn for a childs dress - size 8.
            I was sooo disappointed with all the knots that I had to deal with. A lot of the time there was a knot where the color changed. Hard to deal with. Loved the color combinations but would not buy again because of all the knots.

              I do not expect this quality from Webs; the knots are not acceptable. I started to roll the yarn, but stopped,not sure of what to do with it. It rates among the worst yarn I have ever bought;I cannot recommend the use of it for any project. I could buy far less expensive yarn and end up with a more professional product. I am terribly disappointed with this yarn.

              Buy the Greenleaf Hat pattern on Ravelry by Evelyn Uyemura. It makes great baby gifts. I even mix and match the yarn from the skeins if I don't like the colors that they have sent me.

                not easy to knit with - too many knots in the skein when the colors change - lots of ends to weave in. Inconsistency in the thickness of the yarn make the finished product look messy.

                        Very disappointed--this is not a continuous skein--all the color changes are knotted.
