    I ordered 3 different colors in this yarn. I was happy with two of the three. They were true to color. I was unhappy with the ringmaster color as it was not as brightly colored as the picture, that could be from the difference in dye lots. Just keep this in mind when ordering. The trapese color is out of the world pretty.

    I made a baby sweater from the pinkish one and it turned out okay. I just worry that it will be itchy.
    I made a hooded scarf from the bluish one and it may be the gauge I used, (a little larger than the recommended) and it is too stretchy/limp for my taste.
    Also the bluish one's colors ran when I washed it.

    i love the way this yarn knits up. the yarn is the art itself, no need for fancy knitting or special stitches. just knit away and you'll have a great scarf or shawl. it's gorgeous and people love it.

          I purchased 4 colors of Circus yarn for prayer shawls. It knit up beautifully, and the colors are yummie. The yarn is soft, and machine washable which is a must for donated items. All 4 colors will make beautiful shawls.

                This is very cheap and ugly, the colors are faded looking neons, not at all like the photo. I would skip this and try something else, would send this back if I could. It's going to the Goodwill!

                  I am making an afghan from the circus yarn. I'm knitting it with Cascade yarn on size 15 needles, so it knits up very quickly! I'm sad the circus yarn is being discontinued. I love it!!

                  I made a poncho for a child's size 8 granddaughter. Wish that it had felt heavier and warmer for the NE, but she selected the color and loves it. It had to be machine washable.

                        Colorful substitute for another colorful yarn I was unable to find any more. Stands out. Not the usual pale color baby articles.
