        Splits, but very comfortable!

              I bought this yarn to knit a lace circle skirt. I love the finished product! The yarn is soft and comfortable, with a lovely drape. My only complaint is that it really does split easily, due to the relaxed twist of the plies.

                  I made a sweater with a large lace design. I screwed up several times, ripped out and did it again with the same yarn. This fiber is very durable. You cannot tell the fresh yarn from the one that was knitted 3 times. And I ripped 72 rows each time.
                  I would buy this yarn again. My sweater is finally finished, and it looks beautiful, whew!

                  Fast delivery. Yarn splits had to recount to keep stitch count correct. Made Honey Drop Designs Lilac and lace. Dress Shoes Hat Bloomers and bib.Just ordered lots more for more baby items. Nice colors.
                  When I hand washed the items very heavy.

                  I've knit 2 striped summer sweaters with this yarn. LOVE IT. Cotton feel without the inflexibility and pain of knitting with pure cotton. Very soft, insane value. Cannot recommend highly enough.

                          Easy to block - patterns emerged beautifully in shawls. Works best with a concentrated, methodical technique as the ply easily separates.

                                        I made a summer sweater using three colors and have gotten lots of compliments on the scrumptious colors. The yarn was easy to work with and I hope will wash and wear well with the acrylic content

                                          Weekend is the only yarn I use when I knit gifts for anyone in my brother's family. They love the things I knit, but they are hopeless with laundry. This stuff is the most machine-washable yarn I have ever met. In addition to my upcoming nephew's "baby trousseau", I have knit a sweater for myself and can attest to its softness. The range of colors can't be beat. It has a lovely smooth texture and doesn't feel like a cheap acrylic blend. And SO affordable!
