      Good texture

      Comments about Kertzer Tiara:

      Used this for an open front vest. Simple knit so texture is important. Not hard to use in simple knit.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Had reasonable delivery time and well packaged so no possible damage.

      Sparkling Choice

      Pros

      • Variegated Colorway

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Sweaters
        • Vest

        Comments about Kertzer Tiara:

        I'm using this yarn to make a vest as shown in the Knit 'n Style magazine in the green. I was surprised when the yarn arrived because there is more sparkle than I expected from looking at the pictures online. However, it's definitely something you can wear during the day and the unexpected pop of metallic makes it distinctive. The yarn is processed in Italy so I trusted that it would be excellent and it is. So far the yarn is working up very nicely. It feels a bit scratchy but once it's washed an blocked (as I found from doing the gauge swatch) it softens and feels good against the skin. I'm very excited to complete this project.

        Love the subtle color changes. Great not-too-in-your-face accent yarn.

        Comments about Kertzer Tiara:

        I am knitting a lap blanket with this yarn and I am very pleased with how it's turning out. The color is bright and beautiful and the color changes keep it interesting, the amount sparkle is just right - not so much that it's gaudy, and not so little that it's unnoticeable - and it's significantly softer than I expected a sparkly yarn to be. Also it holds up well to frogging (says the knitter who is careless about pattern instructions). I notice that it does tend to split if I'm not careful, and it twists.

            This is a very pretty light glittery yarn that makes a gorgeous scarf that is soft but warm. It would make a lovely eye-catching sweater, too.

            Comments about Kertzer Tiara:

            I bought three balls to work on a project. It turned out fabulous but I ran out before I could finish and now it seems that Webs no longer carries this item. Please bring Kertzer Tiara in Emerald back:) The draw backs to this yarn is that it snags a little but if you have patience the finished project is worth it.

            • Not pilly
            • vibrant color

            Cons

              • Cowl
              • Hats

              Comments about Kertzer Tiara:

              I made a hooded cowl with the Onyx colored skeins I ordered - finished product is colorful and sparkly, but not so sparkly that it's rough or uncomfortable against bare skin. easy to knit with, the color changes kept me very interested in my project. will definitely buy more when they replenish stock of this item.

              Don't judge a book by it's photo!

              By Trish

              from Royal Oaks, CA

              Pros

              • Nice texture with glitz

              Cons

              • Lacks the color contrast
              • My yarn is much darker

              Best Uses

              • Cowl

              Comments about Kertzer Tiara:

              I chose this yarn for the contrast between the orange and ruby portions in the photographed skein. My 3 skeins are dark ruby red with faded ruby red. I feel the photo was misleading
