        I bought a skein of this yarn in "marigold" as a treat to myself because I loved the orange-gold color on the website. Unfortunately, it was a bit more dandelion-yellow and less vibrant in person, so I was disappointed about that. I'm not sure if that was a factor of the variability in dye lots, or the photography for the website, but it seemed like a significant difference. I'll still use it--the color is pretty and the yarn feels great, it just wasn't what I was jonesing for. Makes me wary of online purchasing.

        Returned this yarn because the color was dull and not at all like the picture. Asked for a reommendation for a brighter green color but did not hear back. Thought that maybe the skein I received was not the best/brightest color that was available.

              so loved working with this yarn. I made the burning branch shawl and was only disappointed bec. I ran out of yarn 3" before the end, and ended up substituting with a similar yarn/almost identical color which I had on hand. Too far for me to hop over to the store and did not want to pay shipping. Mystified how that happened since I used same size needles etc. But the yarn is just gorgeous!!!

                  I ordered the Hemlock color and thought I was getting a vibrant green color. Instead, I received a green color with a LOT of brown and some orange streaks mixed in. Not at all what I expected. I will be returning it.

                    I am making a wrap from the lovely Marigold color that is so like a marigold in early spring with both the gold and brilliant yellow. The fingering weight is a light texture that seems to float it is so weightless and soft. You can't dream of better than a good BFL yarn on any day, but this texture and weight is perfect for a wrap!

                            This yarn is just thick enough to be great for the first time Lace Knitter because it has a little more body than the Lace Category itself; therefore the stitches are easier to control.

                                      I'm knitting a shawl with this yarn. It's full of both cables and lace and in both instances, it gives me no problems. It has great stitch definition on the cables and no snagging while working. I will be buying more of this in the future!
