              I loved working with this yarn. Not usually a fan of acrylic content but even at 49% this yarn was very pleasant. It was easy to work with, has a beautiful feel and knits up beautifully. I made two hats with it, one mixing it with another all-cotton yarn. they both came out lovely, the one with all Solavita has a nice light drapey feel to it. The color striping is beautiful.

                  Comments about SMC Solavita:

                  Knits up really pretty though the pattern repeat is not random enough. It has a beautiful smooth feel when knitting and knits up into a beautiful drapey fabric. Not a fan of acrylic usually but the high acrylic content is no problem here.

                        I make blankets with mixed types of yarn, so this was mixed in with other yarns sizes 4, 5, and 6. It was easy to work with, and the striping adds a lot of visual interest. I love the turquoise color!

                        This yarn has such beautiful color combinations, I just can't take my eyes away from it! Three color stripes on each thread makes it fashionable, chic and attractive. This will work great on a summer crop top or scarf, or even skirt.

                          I have used this for knitted necklaces and for a mixed fiber necklace. The colors are stunning on the the yarn as is; I am going to try using it as a wrap on fabric beads next. IThe fact that it doesn't fray or untwist when cut makes it a great choice for many fiber crafts.

                          Comments about SMC Solavita:

                          I have only used this to crochet chunky scarves. I love it! Great colors, texture and drape. Scarves are a nice midweight that can provide warmth but are also light enough to use as fashion accessories. I always get plenty of compliments on the scarves crocheted with Solavita.
