Painted Desert by Knitting Fever is a soft, self-striping fingering weight yarn that's perfect for shawls, wraps and lace projects. Painted Desert is two plies, each a different luminous jewel tone with long color changes. With a supple hand and plenty of stretch, Painted Desert will be a joy to work with, and there's enough yarn in one 100g ball to make a shawl. Made in China.

Beautiful colors and fun to knit. But had 2 yarn breaks in one 100 gram ball and inconsistent yarn thickness. It's a center pull ball but using it from that end made it twirl and spin on itself so frogged it and used other end. It would be great if this were in a skein so I could wind it myself-- inconvenient to do from a ball.

Not sure if I would buy this again.

purchased on a whim, have not used this yarn before, meant to be used with several other yarns for a shawl.

      Nice color shifts but slippery

        Comments about Knitting Fever Painted Desert:

        I use addi turbos and this yarn was very slippery to work with. My project looked horrible until I blocked out and that helped a lot to even out the knitting. Maybe using wood needles would help with the slippery factor. The yarn also had some areas that appeared to be spliced and some knots here and there.

        Knot in the middle!

        Comments about Knitting Fever Painted Desert:

        I bought this yarn to weave an ombre scarf. The colors are wonderful for that. However, about 3/4 of the way through the ball, a new piece of yarn was tied on. It spoiled the continuity of the color pattern significantly. In the future, I will have to check the entire skein for such problems before starting a project. Bummer.

            This yarn was an excellent weight for the shawl I made. I used US#8 crochet hook on a corner to corner shawl. Lovely to work with soft yet sturdy. It didn't split or unravel, it was a pleasure to work with

            Comments about Knitting Fever Painted Desert:

            I bought the yarn as I believed it was shades of blue, turquoise and purple. There is an element of orange in the gradient. It's not what I intended for my project, but I am using the yarn anyway.

            Aside from that, the yarn is nice to work with.

            I've been knitting "Bermuda" shawls, pattern on Ravelry. It's the perfect pattern to show off a perfect color gradient. Just love the hand of the knitted garment. Washes up well. Plan to buy more.
