      Comments about Tahki Yarns Rio:

      I would not recommend working up cables with this yarn because of the thick thin nature, but yarn overs and other patterns wroked fine for me. I just love the softness of this yarn.

      Comments about Tahki Yarns Rio:

      This was my first experience using a thick-thin yarn. I had to find a needle size that worked for my gauge. I am a medium knitter, neither tight or especially loose.

      My concern was that too many of the thin areas would be one on top of the other and the same with the thick areas. It didn't happen. I loved the softness and subtle sheen of the yarn. My only concern is it does seem to shed a bit.

      I used Rio on a Thaki Luna Shrug pattern. Opened the box and fell in love!! So soft!!!!I rubbed it all over my face and arms and immediately put in a order for two more color lots. One for a hat for my Hubby and another for a short-sleeve cardi

      Light, Lovely and Lofty

      By Anonymous

      from Los ANGELES, CA

      Comments about Tahki Yarns Rio:

      I really liked this yarn, once I found which needles worked for me, I had trouble finding a gauge which worked for me, but once I did, I went down to an 8 but I am a very loose knitter, it fairly flew off my needles. The resulting cowl was so soft, warm and very lofty, quite a pleasure.
