            This worked great for a simple vest, the yarn provides the interest rather than construction. Nice soft and subtle color variations make it versatile.

              • Not A Bulky Yarn To Me

              Best Uses

                Comments about Queensland Collection Sandstone:

                Not a bad yarn. I worked with it because of the coloration I needed. Made a shawl and I needed more yarn than I calculated because of thw weight difference. The client was happy and that is all that matters.

                Soft but uneven

                  • Scarves

                  Comments about Queensland Collection Sandstone:

                  This yarn is soft but calling it bulky is a bit misleading, considering how many many sections of it are very thin and over-spun. Other sections are hardly twisted at all - I dropped my yarn ball at one point and the fibers just separated. I'm using it for a scarf, so the differences aren't a big deal once it's knitted up, but I wish I'd known beforehand that my yarn would be so uneven.
