Nice Texture but Yarn Splits Easily

Nice look and feel to this yarn but the needle splits through this yarn very easily which really slows you down. Definitely not the yarn for doing intricate cable work. Very glad the sweater...Read complete review

Nice look and feel to this yarn but the needle splits through this yarn very easily which really slows you down. Definitely not the yarn for doing intricate cable work. Very glad the sweater I was doing was only for a baby or I would have had to give up and use something else.

      Comments about Frog Tree Picoboo:

      Used to make a summer tee with some lace work. Color lovely but knitting had to be slow because I had to watch every stitch. Difficult to capture every strand. Once a strand is pulled difficult to fix.

      Great drape and nice and soft.

          Comments about Frog Tree Picoboo:

          I love working with this yarn. I am allergic to wool, so it is wonderful to have choices outside of acrylic. I am making my first sweater with it. The packaging recommends size US 8 needles, but US size 5 is a much better choice. The yarn has the same consistency as very good embroidery thread. It is made up of about 12 threads that are nicely spun together. It stays compact and I am not having any issues with unraveling. I would recommend using 2 metal circular needles with rubber stoppers. The yarn is very responsive and a little slippery. So make sure to use the rubber stoppers every time you put the piece down. I love the color - I picked a dark butterscotch color.

              I Very much love this yarn. It's a lovely weight and drapes very nicely!

              Super soft and has an earthy look with a little bit of sheen.
