soft and stretchy

I used this yarn for knitting a headband that had a leaf pattern. This yarn was perfect! The leafs stand out in the pattern but the headband is still soft and stretchy.

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:

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.!

        Comments about Berroco Maya:

        I used Maya to knit a shrug. This is the first time I've ever knitted a project to completion (almost done -- just have to put the seams in) is a short period of time. The yarn was easy to use because when I mistakenly purled instead of knitting - the stitches were easy to backtrack and correct without any snarls.

        Looking forward to finding another project to use this yarn again!

              Service and delivery comments:

              As always shipping was fast and service was wonderful. I appreciate it when the packaging is waterproof since sometimes the package is outside for 6-8 hours before I can get it.

                    Very soft, like the definition. Making a summer top. Splits easily and unravels quickly if you don't knot the ends

                                I was glad to find the skein I needed to complete a project - the retailer was one short. However, any online purchase is my last resort. Having worked in a yarn shop for 21 years before moving to a small community without a local shop, it is difficult for me to justify shopping online when I know the valuable service a yarn shop provides, and how difficult it is to maintain a small business. Also, can't duplicate dye lots online.
