    Shreds like crazy

    Comments about Debbie Bliss Eco Aran Fair Trade Collection:

    I bought this yarn on sale in two pretty colors for sweaters, one for my sister and one for myself. So far I've knit about half of my sister's sweater and am having huge problems with snagging, splitting, and shredding. The pattern stitch requires double yarn overs, K2tog, and psso's. All these stitches offer opportunities to split the yarn, and boy does it split. Once the yarn is split, undoing it and reknitting the botched stitch leaves several of the threads loose from the rest of the yarn and it's impossible to get these shredded stitches to lie flat and behave themselves. I hope that I can pull all these shreds to the inside when I'm finished so that they won't show. I haven't had the problem of knots within a ball, but switching to a new ball is a challenge. I use the weaving in technique, not knots, when joining the yarn. But the tails that result promise to pose shredding problems when the sweater is finished. I may have to knot the very end of the yarn instead of simply cutting off the tails. I'm not looking forward to knitting my sweater -- in fact I may not ever get around to it.

    soft cotton, beautiful colour

        Comments about Debbie Bliss Eco Aran Fair Trade Collection:

        I used this yarn for an easy eyelet baby blanket. The yarn was soft and a beautiful colour (jade). It suggests hand washing, and though you want cotton to be machine washable, this is probably advisable...
        This was the easiest cotton yarn I've ever knit with--had more flexibility than others.
        The yarn splits easily, so requires a bit more care when knitting.
        One complaint I have is that within the balls of yarn, they would attach two strings together and leave no ends--a very ugly knot indeed that you had to work to make a nicer knot with ends you could weave in. I was expecting such a small ball of yarn to be in one piece.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was prompt and exactly as requested.

        Very pretty color, soft to touch, but too many knots to use again. I bought this on sale, would have hated to pay full price.

          I´m knitting a summer vest with this and previously knit a shawl with this yarn. It has great stitch definition so is a good yarn for showing off a pretty pattern. Do be careful with pointy needles though because it seems like it is about 12 ply and it is easy to catch a bit of the yarn when you don´t want to.
