    This is not a worsted weight yarn.

    Love this yarn, it is really pretty for the price point. You can create a very angelic pair of booties with one skein.

    The description says worsted weight, it is not. Maybe a light worsted, but that is even pushing it. It knits beautifully on a US 5.

    I was knitting Santa's beard on a Christmas stocking and it was too thin. I couldn't double it as I was knitting from both ends. Later, when I could double it, it looked a lot better. What I had previously was A.C.A Supreme 100% pure Angora and Fox Brand Superchoice French Angora both made in France-much nicer.

        Incredibly soft with that perfect halo you expect with angora. The colors are rich in intensity. I made a cowl and matching mitts but someday I would love a cardigan out if this yarn.

              I am working 3 strands of yarn, the Plymouth Angora, a lace silk and a strand of glitter all in the same teal/turqoise colorway. The combination is stunning! Soft, fuzzy with a subtle glimmer. There were no sweater patterns for this yarn but I wanted to make a holiday sweater so I found a pattern caling for a mohair and used the above combination! Only wish the yarn came in larger balls.

                  This super soft yarn made a lovely winter hat. Very warm, yet light as a feather, this yarn was a pleasure to knit with. I highly recommend for that special item that needs a soft accent.
