This was a very fun yarn to knit with, I made a small jacket to wear over a cotton tee or turtleneck. The yarn has lots of give to make it easy to knit with, but springs right back together for perfect, even stitches. The color knitted up beautifully. I did not have trouble with twisting.

I added my review b/c I used this yarn as a carry along with a bulky novelty yarn for a scarf. It does twist, but I used two yarns (the other was Presto) and it did not matter if it twisted or not. Would not use next to skin either b/c the metallic thread is itchy.

      Comments about Nashua Handknits Daylily:

      I'm making a little girl's garter-stitched cardigan with Daylily. I love the way it looks, but am especially frustrated by the yarn's behavior. Its twist makes it kink, and when I try to unkink it, it loses its twist. Also, the nylon part snags occasionally, leaving a little ball of fluff on the project. It's also very difficult to correct mistakes without unraveling the plies.

        Daylily comes in beautiful colors and when knitted up is bright and lively! I purchased to make a poncho for a child and she loves it,

            Knitting a summer weight cardigan that had to be ripped out and restarted (size issues, MY fault). Yarn handles well and feels fine. I guess I'm not a princess.

              I used one skein of this yarn to make a small twisted cowl - really a neckwarmer - to go with casual tops and keep drafts off my neck. The yarn worked up well and the colors were a joy. In fact, I got it because the colors were so beautiful. Use 2 skeins to get a taller cowl, and 3 or 4 to make one long enough to loop around your neck twice.

                Did split a tad but switching to metal needles took care of most of the problem. Fell in love with the colorway on this one!

                Comments about Nashua Handknits Daylily:

                This yarn was very twisty. I was disappointed at just how rough it is. It's scratchy. It seems really strong, though, so it would be perfect for a bag.

                The colors are really lovely, though. Really, really pretty.
