      The sweater pattern that I got with the yarn is perfect with this yarn. I love the texture, softness and the great look of it. I have no negatives with this yarn. It exceeds what I expected for a yarn of the price I paid.

        Comments about Tahki Yarns Jackson:

        I have enjoyed using this yarn to make a top down sweater. I used 9's instead of the recommended 10's to get a denser knit and it was a bit tight. I've also used 11's and made several cozy earwarmers out of it, not scratchy at all. The only thing that I didn't like about it is that with the way it is spun, it has looser bits that sometimes split.

        Comments about Tahki Yarns Jackson:

        I make super chunky cowls and was looking for a super bulky yarn to use (something that would knit up quickly but still look good). The yarn itself is beautiful, especially the texture and the saturated colors, but it wasn't nearly as bulky as I was hoping for.

        Maybe my problem is that I feel like there should be another few categories for heavier weight fibers—I'm not sure 3.5 stitches per inch on size 10 needles should count as "bulky".
