      I used this particular yarn to make a throw for a friend. It's a great yarn to knit with and the throw looked wonderful!

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Coffee Beenz:

        I knit several scarves for the Red Scarf project using this yarn. The tweed effect looks nice in a plain pattern or in a more complicated one. There is enough wool in the blend for it to block out nicely and not turn limp like 100% acryllic does.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Coffee Beenz:

          I'm always a little hesitant when purchasing new (to me) yarn. This one didn't disappoint...soft and works up nicely. I'm currently working on a sweater in the dark brown and planning ahead as to my next project using this yarn. Really nice!

            Comments about Plymouth Yarn Coffee Beenz:

            As a hand and tri-loom weaver I look for a yarn with substance, strength without bulk and good texture. Coffee Beenz was a serendipitous find for me and after working with it I have purchased more because of it's qualities. I gives a classy look to a sweater, shawls, hats and scarves when edged with a complimentary solid color.

              This yarn worked up beautifully in a garter-stitch bordered kimono I made for my daughter's Christmas gift. It has a comfortably soft texture, and it's a plus that it can be machine washed.

                I made two hats from Coffee Beenz. Worked up really quick. Was easy to "back out" unintended stitches. Very soft to the touch but substantial weight.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Coffee Beenz:

                I bought Coffee Beenz by Plymouth Yarn after seeing a fetching beret pattern online knitted in the orange speckled color. When the yarn arrived by mail I was a bit put off. The color seemed harsh and the yarn coarse. But I needed a project for a 5-hour plane trip and took it along with me. Would you believe it — I began to realize that as the beret quickly took shape it was a darn cute thing, and so what if the yarn wasn't a soft merino or alpaca but a decent wool and acrylic, sturdy and dependable. I bought two other colors to knit similar hats for Christmas presents.

                  I love the feel of this yarn. Hats and scarves are near the face and this yarn is soft to the touch. I wash by hand but the fact that it is machine washable is a plus. will buy more..

                  I've knit socks and shawls with Jelli Beenz and Coffee Beenz. Both yarns were easy to handle, felt good, and produced long-wearing, beautiful socks and soft, attractive shawls.
