I use this yarn for easy scarves and my standby, the La-La Simple Shawl. I live in the Southern US, but cotton yarn usually hurts my hands. This doesn't. I also like Cascade Tangier, but it sheds like a llama. This doesn't. Others complain about splitting and breaking, but I've never had that problem. Part of the reason is probably that I always use at least a #9 needle with it for an open look AND I don't go for remotely complex patterns on shawls or scarves. The twisting is not as much of a problem if I wind with a swift and ball winder and pull from the center. Even so, there are MANY yarns a lot twistier, so I don't mind this.

I received 2 skeins in a 'mystery' bag and purchased a third to complete the shrug I was making. All three skeins had the same problems. Thickness is listed as Worsted but ran from lace to roving and I frequently had issues with it pulling apart forcing me to rip out stitches to weave in new ends. It twisted up frequently no matter what I tried to prevent it. I also found pieces of hay throughout all three skeins, some as long as a 1/4". As most of the pieces had clearly been dyed it wasn't a case of picking it up from a display setting. This was the worst yarn I've ever worked with.

Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

Possibly the nicest yarn I've ever used. It was wonderfully soft and the colours are fabulous. I knitted a shawl with it and it's like being hugged by a rainbow. My only negative comment would be I can't find any more as several people have seen at and asked me to make them one.

Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

My first order (and last) from WEBS. A disappointment and this company came highly recommended. Colors of the yarn misrepresented on the site, no mention of this not being a good yarn for weaving (although I was told this after the fact). No apologies when I wrote to let them know about it, just excuses. Yes...disappointed.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

      Wonderfully soft and colorful yarn that makes knitting pleasurable. However, I would not recommend this yarn to a novice or for a project that requires difficult stichwork as the yarn breaks quite easily. Therefore, too much handling from ripping out stiches or too much tension will cause it to break. However, once knitted the fabric seems quite durable without pilling. I would also recommend using a smaller needle than suggested. I would definitely buy this yarn again.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Excellent service as always!

          I Really Like This

          By Divaknitter

          from Central Illinois

          Pros

          • Beautiful colors
          • Not Too Heavy
          • Wool Free

              Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

              This makes the prettiest entrelac I've ever done. My friend is droling over the dcarf I'm making her. I made a plain hat which is very nice but I ordered more to make an entrelac hat as welll.

              It is essential to be a bit gentle while handling this yarn because there are thin spots that could break if handled too roughly.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

                I found a pattern that called for another similiar yarn with about half the yardage that KUDO has. Also, when I first found KUDO it was a "sale" yarn, a very good price for the quality. The project turned out so well, others in my kniting circle wanted Kudo to do the same pattern, but, naturally in different color combinations. We find the yarn works best with soft handling---do not knit TIGHT; it will break! We are using the pattern to make both summer tops (very simple styling since the textured multi-colored yarn does all the work) and winter vests---using basically the same simple pattern. Here is the secret---the pattern is knit multi-directional, usually a "patch" or "stripe" uses about 60 stitches, creating a band of a single color, then changes with the next direction into another colored band---all on the same side of the garment.

                I cannot wait to try making a winter cardigan using entrelac. I plan to flesh out the simple rectangulars with rows/rnds of garter st for the necessary shaping---if needed. The yarn works so well in garter stitch pattern. Keep it simple, simple, simple.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

                The yarn is very pretty with changing textures and colors. However, it broke 3 times during the long tail cast-on (at a nice loose tension) and then 3-4 more times through the piece (a pretty bolero) and during the cast-off. I can't imagine making a sweater or other piece than requires sewing together-- it would not stand the strain. Thought about returning but it was so pretty.
