    Lovely!

    Comments about Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Worsted:

    I absolutely love this yarn! I bought several skeins for Xmas scarves and liked it so much I bought enough for a sweater. It knits up beautifully and comes in the loveliest colors. I've noticed that several of the shades, such as 'Juniper' don't seem to be available anywhere anymore. I hope this yarn is not being discontinued. I know that some knitters don't enjoy the single ply yarns saying they tend to split. I think the right needle makes all the difference. Bamboo worked well for me but...better still are the Addi Skacel Turbo Lace needles with the brass tips. Whew! They're fast as lightning and slip around the single ply without splitting. Fabulous!

    Comments about Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Worsted:

    the yarn comes in lovely colors with a wonderful gloss/sheen to it but the texture is slightly fuzzy and it splits while working.I liked the natural color very much...it is like a beautiful golden but not the yarn.
