lovely yarn

By heather

from colorado

Pros

  • Good Yardage
  • Nice Sheen
  • Soft

Cons

  • Irregularities

Best Uses

  • Crochet
  • Lace

This is a gorgeous yarn, great texture, easy to work with, and you get a lot of yardage for the money. I made a tunisian crochet shawl and really couldn't be happier with the end product. You need to be a little careful if you have to rip anything back as it's a little fuzzy, but overall it was very easy to work with. I took off one star for the irregularities, but overall I'd be happy to use this yarn again. The ivory color is about perfect, incidentally, not too white, not too yellow.

Loved It

Pros

  • Good yardage

Cons

    Best Uses

      I purchased 1 to use for a test knit of a lace shawl The yarn was perfect and the test knit turned out beautiful. I found nothing wrong with this yarn and would easily use it in the future. I wore the shawl to visit hubby's 99 year old Ausnt Cuba and I decided to let it live with her. So I must make myself another one.

      Very nice to knit with!

      By BarbS

      from Pierre, SD

      Pros

      • Nice Stitch definition

      Cons

      • knots easily

      Best Uses

        I'm using this for a lace cardigan, and I love the fabric I'm getting, and the stitch definition. It is a "sticky" yarn, so it knots itself if you aren't careful, but I will definitely use it again. Especially since it is such a great price!

        Cons

        • Multiiple Irregularities
        • Won't Hold Nupps
        • Wont Hold Nubbs

        Best Uses

        • Lace

        i started making an estonian style lace shawl with nupps ... i tried to make the nupps so many times, but the yarn would not tighten up and hold the nupp. also, in the first 6" of knitting i found 2 occurrences where the yarn thickened to twice the width.
