    I love this yarn because of the feel and the texture. It really is very soft and comfortable. My comment is aimed at the fact that there are no dye lots for this yarn. This is not an issue until you need to use more than one hank...there will be noticeable color shifts unless you knit from two skeins at once ( two rows from one, two rows from the other).
    I purchased four hanks of this yarn, intending to knit a sweater. I know about the dye lot issue, and wanted to see if I could effectively disguise the color shifts...
    I decided to knit squares, each one from a different skein. I assembled them as I worked. The sweater is not finished, but I can see that this method does NOT disguise the color shifts. Each square is just a little different from the next, but since the sweater itself is one unit, I think I can pull it off.
    HOWEVER, if I were to purchase multiple hanks of this yarn again, I would simply knit whatever I was making with the two-rows-from-two-skeins method. I think it's the only way to get a really cohesive whole.

    not really such a great yarn

    planned on using this splurge on a fitted sweater which I will do but yarn is really thinner than I expected more like a fingering and the ball ban stated gauge is overly optimistic. ...Read complete review

    planned on using this splurge on a fitted sweater which I will do but yarn is really thinner than I expected more like a fingering and the ball ban stated gauge is overly optimistic. my gauge swatch is soft and drapes well but at suggested gauge is almost see through!

    I made a "sleevie wonder" out of this yarn it is sort of a shrug that you can wear over your arms and shoulders. I can also wear it as a scarf it is so soft.

          The yarn was just what I hoped for, quick delivery. My first experience with WEBS, but it certainly won't be the last! Thank you!

            The color was not as true to the picture on the web site and in spots the dying is thin, but the knitted swatch is still quite attractive for hand dyed yarn. I am using this yarn for a knit-a-long project with my knitting guild. Several members are admiring the yarn. I shopped quite a bit for this yarn and believe that Webs gave me the best price plus fast delivery.

              Nice weight for the reversible blanket. Slight amount of color variance in the Astrd Grey works up to show definition in the pattern very nicely. A real pleasure to work with. Have already ordered a second color.

                The yarn was not a gift, but the shrug I made with it is. Pattern recommended this yarn and it was a perfect choice. I'll use it again if it washes and wears as well as it knits.

                      I have been knitting for over 35 years and this is by far the most expensive yarn I have purchased. When I finished knitting my sweater and tried it on, all I could say when I looked in the mirror was "Wow!" I am super sensitive to wool, and this yarn has just minimal itch around the neck; the rest of the sweater is super soft on my skin. The stitch definition and uniformity is like none other than I have ever knitted. The color is intensely rich and beautiful; the color shifts are amazing. (I did knit from 2 skeins at once, alternating rows.) I also found the gauge to be true when knitting on size 5 needles and after blocking. I highly recommend this yarn and look forward to using this yarn again in the future.
