Cascade Tivoli is a soft blend of wool and silk - it's a tweed with just the subtlest hint of sheen from the silk fibers. This is a bulky yarn, so it works up fast into beautiful fabric. Made in China

This yarn is deceptive
from Independence, KY
Given that the yarn is made of wool and silk, I expected to see more shine, but it wasn't. The tweed color was beautiful. When I first handled it, I thought uh-oh. The yarn was so dense that it felt like rope. It felt like I was knitting rope, too. I made a scarf as a present for Christmas so I didn't have time to ship it back and get something else. Turns out that was a good thing. Once I washed it, it softened up substantially! Due to an accident, I had to wash it twice, and it became even softer after the second washing. I said this yarn was deceptive because I believe this yarn will just get softer every time it's washed. I was pretty nervous when I first received it, though!

Knots - ugh!
from Seattle, WA
After buying 3 skeins to use for a project, I ended up with a bag of little balls after I cut out knots. Its so very irritating and, in my opinion, unneccesary to produce skeins with knots. Whether the yarn wears well or is fun to knit is a side note at this point. There are many other lovely yarns that come without knots so I'll be looking elsewhere for this type of yarn in the future.
