          I used this yarn to knit a cardigan sweater and fingerless gloves. They turned out beautiful! Coloring was gorgeous. Warm and soft and nice stitch definition.

          The only draw back would be that it is a little hairy so when knitting the yarn would split a little and I had to be more careful.

          I would use this again though.

          This yarn is pretty when knit into a garment. The colors sort of 'stripe' throughout the project and the end result is very pretty.

          The yarn is uneven with some of a ball being thick while other parts are very thin. It wouldn't be a good choice for a professional sort of look but is great for weekend or leisure wear.

          It feels rough when knitting but once it's put together it has a soft texture.

            I am going to use it to knit a sweater but haven't started yet. I love how soft it is.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt, the packaging intact but had to pay duty on it when it was delivered.

                          It felt scratchy at first but then when knit up it became soft and warm and squishy. I made a Leaving Cowl and have recieved so many compliments on the colour and bulkiness of the yarn! Overall a great yarn for a quick project!

                                    I'm using Riva with a Noro yarn to make a gorgeous sweater coat I can use when I travel to the mainland. It is a pleasure to knit with and I would purchase the yarn again for other projects.

                                          I made 2 scarves and 2 shoulder capes from Debbie Bliss book "Riva". I used 4 of the colors; all beautiful. I also plan to make a sweater in the near future.

                                              Making a shawl with size 11 needles. Fabric is soft and drapes nicely. Hanks vary quite a bit within the same dye lot--some do not include all of the color transitions--and there is a difference in the color emphasis in any given hank. However, the colors within the dye lot do match. For my project, the variation between hanks has not been a problem. It has made the pattern more interesting.

                                              Beautiful colors. Need to buy a lot since even two balls doesn't make a long scarf.
