      Comments about Queensland Collection Leche:

      I used this yarn to knit a cowl for my daughter. The color was beautiful and rich. The fabric created was lofty and very soft. The only thing I disliked was the feel of the microfiber. Though a subtle feeling, while working with the yarn at times it felt very much like an acrylic or artificial yarn despite the other natural fibers. The yarn itself has a natural halo but while working with it, it became fuzzy. However after blocking most of the fuzziness disappeared. All in all I love the finished product and it was a pleasure to work with.

        Comments about Queensland Collection Leche:

        I bought this for a sweater for my new Grandson. I have made several machine washable items but was so taken with this yarn I felt it was worth the hand wash care it will need. It has depth of color and is very soft and cozy. It was so easy to work with and even being ripped out did not faze this yarn. A Great find!

        Very nice yarn but not hard wearing

            Comments about Queensland Collection Leche:

            I used this for a sweater and it came out great and has held up pretty well. But I also used it for some fingerless gloves and those did not hold up well at all. They stretched quite a bit and generally look very ratty. I keep expecting my sweater to do the same but it still looks very nice after wearing it maybe 15 times so far. It has nice stitch definition and is a very pretty yarn.

                Comments about Queensland Collection Leche:

                I have only just started a gauge swatch for an aran sweater - so far it seeems to be knitting to gauge perfectly - I think the loft of the yarn makes it knit at a light worsted tension - not an aran weight. The pattern I am using calls for smaller needles than I would normally use on a worsted weight yarn, but this yarn seems to be knitting just right. Wish Queensland would not have discontinues this yarn.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Excellent and quick delivery - One ball was missing from order - customer service sent it quickly and were friendly and easy to deal with.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    One of the balls was short and there was a knot about the last yard or so. Problem was solved to my satisfaction. Great service.

                          I ordered this yarn in 7 colors and I plan to use them all up. Used it for a striped raglan hoodie and a Habitat hat, and will have additional projects on the needles as soon as possible. Beautiful texture, very soft and fluffy, doesn't split, easy to work with. The sweater is wearing very well and became an instant favorite. The silk gives it drape, but not to the point where the sweater loses shape. Cables look amazing. Enthusiastically recommend this yarn for knitting your future heirlooms.

                              I am currently knitting a sweater. The pattern is distinct. The yarn is easy to work with. It glides through the fingers making it easy keep the proper guage. Color is true to the picture online. I will definitely consider using this yarn on another project. Just love it. And, it feels so luxurious.

                                I'm using this yarn for an Aran knit cardigan and I absolutely love how it's coming out. It's so soft and touchable that I have a hard time switching to other yarn projects. I have a feeling this sweater is going to be my favorite piece to wear. I bought the yarn on sale, so the price was perfect.
