            Just a bunch of strands of yarn, knotted to create the lenght. Looks beautiful as a skein, pretty awful once knit up. It's just stripes of random yarn pieces. I could have achieved that look from the various scraps I have left over. The price for this is OUTRAGEOUS! Very disappointed. I was able to make a very tiny 6inch x 12 inch square.

            there isn't very much yardage but if you use very large needles (size 17) you can knit up a very pretty scarf. It's unusual because it even has ribbon tied in.

                  This is such a creative yarn. Yes, it is expensive. I have rarely used it alone to make a lovely one-skein ruffly short scarf. I make larger scarves mixing with a plain yarn that blends in with the color scheme. I also have used it for details, stripes embedded in sweaters.
                  The economic and social impact of the yarn also appeal to me.

                      I was intrigued by the scarf in the WEBS catalogue and decided to give this a try. It made up quickly and and it is a beautiful accessory. I was pleased enough that when I was next at the store I purchased a different color to make a scarf for my daughter. I agree that it is expensive (although I got the WEBS discount), but I like the social consciousness aspect of the yarn. It makes up into intriguing textures and lovely colorways. I think if you wanted it longer, you could easily add to the number of stitches and it would still be wide enough.

                      Garbage Yarn!

                      By Anonymous

                      Comments about Be Sweet Magic Ball:

                      I purchased a skein just to try it, because it's so expensive - the colors & textures looked so gorgeous! I was VERY disappointed when I tried to roll it into a ball, what a tangled mess! I found that this yarn is nothing more than SCRAPS of various yarns knotted together to equal the 100 yds. (if you're lucky), & Be Sweet isn't being truthful about the fibers in this, either - not everything in the skein was hand-dyed or hand-spun, some of it had tinsel strands, some of it was ribbon, & so on. It's VERY expensive yarn for such a small amount! Now add your disappointment on top of that! I'd never recommend it & I'll never buy another skein!

                      yarn is a mess

                      Used WEBS pattern from recent catalog, my scarf was 4 inches short and I am a loose knitter. Yarn was broken in 3 places and was a mess to work with. Where yarns were twisted together they didn't match up-waste of money for me. Returned the 2nd skein I purchased for a refund.
