best yarn I've ever worked with

By marfie

from NC

This yarn is by far the best for small knitted items. I've created mittens and socks with the sport weight silk and wool blend and the results are colorful and absolutely beautiful. The yarn lays beautifully as you knit, inconsistencies disappear. It's suitably stretchy and soft and makes fluffy ribbing. It screams quality from the moment you cast on. Ombre color schemes are beautiful. It is expensive but you get ~250 yards per skein. There's no tangling and very minimal splitting. Works up perfectly every time. The only comment which may be construed as a negative is that the color shading is ombre so the colors change very, very gradually on the skein, thus there's not really a repeating color pattern. If you want a pair of mittens or socks to match you have to plan ahead and divide the skein into two matching balls otherwise the pair (socks or mittens) will have two different color schemes and not seem to be a matching set. The yardage is generous about 250 yards for sport weight, although sometimes it seems less (still is a generous amount!) If you splurge for this yarn you won't regret it. Once you see your final results you'll be glad you took the plunge. PS It hardly ever goes on sale so if you find it at $26/skein, get it.

Is the yardage correct?

By LizR79

from Baltimore

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        First, I LOVE this yarn. It is so exciting to knit with because even with a simple pattern, seeing the color change subtly throughout the project is addictive. I know Freia makes a number of handpainted yarns with ombre color schemes and all are beautiful. I personally prefer this yarn because of the wool/silk blend.

        I would mention 2 cons for this yarn, but neither will hold me back from using. First, it splits when correcting mistakes. Second, in some of the darker colors, the dye has not saturated the yarn. Sometimes, there are white spots on the outside of the yarn I think it adds to the beauty but you may want to inspect your yarn before beginning a project.

        to WEBS - Are you sure the yardage is correct? The only wool/silk combination I have found is called 'Refined' and it is 165 yards in the worsted size.
