        Loved It

        Pros

        • Good yardage

        Cons

          Best Uses

            I purchased 1 to use for a test knit of a lace shawl The yarn was perfect and the test knit turned out beautiful. I found nothing wrong with this yarn and would easily use it in the future. I wore the shawl to visit hubby's 99 year old Ausnt Cuba and I decided to let it live with her. So I must make myself another one.

            Pros

            • Nice Stitch definition

            Cons

            • knots easily

            Best Uses

              I'm using this for a lace cardigan, and I love the fabric I'm getting, and the stitch definition. It is a "sticky" yarn, so it knots itself if you aren't careful, but I will definitely use it again. Especially since it is such a great price!

              Best Uses

              • Lace

              i started making an estonian style lace shawl with nupps ... i tried to make the nupps so many times, but the yarn would not tighten up and hold the nupp. also, in the first 6" of knitting i found 2 occurrences where the yarn thickened to twice the width.
