        Comments about Mirasol Sawya:

        This yarn knits up beautifully. I'm making an aran blanket with it. The drape is great. The weight will be warm without being cloying. The only downside is that I think this blanket is going to be quite heavy by the time it is complete. Bought enough to also make a sweater. Cannot wait to see how that turns out.

        Looks great in a heavily cabled pattern. The cables really pop and the knitted fabric has a wonderful hand. Some hanks have a knotted join towards the end.

            No wonder it is soft....Sawya is a Peruvian word that means soft!! Using this yarn to show off an intricate cable on a sweater I've always wanted to knit.

              Another great yarn from WEBS! Very sturdy yet soft and breathable. Crochet a nice pullover and the stitches literally popped out at you!

                Comments about Mirasol Sawya:

                This yarn is gorgeous. I'm using it to make a chemo cap for my sister, who will be undergoing treatment throughout the summer. I wanted something that will be soft and warm, without scratching and suffocating, and Sawya fits the bill perfectly. LOVED working with it and look forward to gifting the hat to my sister.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Not only was the deliver prompt, I received great service when I had some questions about type of yarn, etc. Will definitely do business with WEBS again!

                    This yarn is soft and supple and looks great for a summer project, I think it would made a great poncho or sweater, including menswear.
