        Beautiful Yarn

        About Me Enthusiast

        Pros

        • Nice color changes
        • Wonderful Mix Of Silk

        Cons

        • Sheds At First

        Best Uses

        • Sweaters

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Mushishi:

        I made a poncho which allowed the color changes to really show off. The finished item is very warm and I get lots of compliments on the poncho and separately on the yarn.

        Service and delivery comments:

        My delivery was faster than anticipated which worked wonderfully because I'd run out of yarn to finish my project. The dye lots, although different, blended well. The cost was very reasonable. I'll definitely use this site again.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Mushishi:

          Used this yarn for a sweater. Knit up with some speed, a bit weighty, but good for truly cold weather wares. Soft and knit without splitting or causing any problems. Also color was vibrant, but not overly bright/garish. Frogs easily (just in case).

            Comments about Plymouth Yarn Mushishi:

            I used this incredible yarn to knit the Plymouth Basketweave Throw (one of the related patterns) as a wedding gift for a friend's daughter. I wanted the throw larger than shown in the pattern and increased the dimensions to 46 x 60, requiring 5 hanks. From the minute I opened the box and saw that beautiful yarn, I was completely in love with it. The purples, greens and golds transitioned beautifully from one to the next and the flecks of white gave it great dimension.

            Needless to say, the finished product was stunning and difficult to part with.

              A wonderful yarn to knit! The generous yardage is wonderful, too -- fewer ends to weave in.

                This is a beautiful soft, multicolored, nubby, very subtly striped yarn. Loved working with it, and love wearing it.

                  A friend of mine was making this beautiful short-row sweater with this yarn, but I wasn't thrilled with the tweedy white specks in the original color ways. But recently, they came out with these two new color ways that don't have those white specks - one purple and one red. I got four skeins in the purple and it's absolutely gorgeous stuff. The texture is amazing and the color is amazing.

                      I have bought this yarn as a gift but I like it enough to buy more for my own use. Although it is not the softest, it does not scratch or itch and has a slight halo which I find appealing. A little too expensive to buy for every day use but worth the investment for something special.
