I used the pink/mauve/beige colorway in a simple garter stitch shawl. It is beautiful and I get a lot of compliments whenever I wear the shawl. I bought my yarn at the store. I am so glad that it is now online because I have wanted to use it again, I have only washed my shawl once. It did soften up somewhat with washing but not enough for next-to-skin wear. I generally my shawls in the winter over a blouse or shirt so it has not been a concern for me.

I bought this yarn because of the color to knit socks. I was surprised at the coarse texture but not put off. I soon discovered that it has a very long color repeat which may be an advantage for larger objects but does not work a well for samller items like socks. I ended up with one green sock and one purple sock due to the repeat length. While I'm not bothered by this, you may be if you prefer symmetry.

My biggest complaint came when I ran into a knot. While trying to find a similar color in the transition to continue, I disovered that the transition beyond the knot was running in the opposite direction. I consequently had to begin unwinding the ball from the opposite end to find a color match and get the colors running in the correct direction. This lack of care on the part of the manufacturer is annoying and cost this yarn one star. It is why I called the yarn "user unfriendly".

            Comments about Kauni Effekt:

            really feels scratchy in the ball. Also sticks to itself nicely so that the odd dropped stitch does not travel anywhere. Have not yet finished and blocked my shawl. However, did frog and restart a considerable portion and when that frogged yarn was briefly washed it did soften and bloom nicely. Love the blended colors. I have a good hair conditioner in mind should I need it.

                  I love this yarn because its varigation is longer than most varigated yarn. Their colors are different and I love their color combinations. I used them for double knitting and brioche knitting. The effect of color was amazing. I am building Kauni Effekt yarn stash.

                  i'm using this to make the beautiful "Anne-Evilla" by Ruth Sorenson. although the yarn feels a bit coarse while knitting, i think it will soften up with the blocking process. the colors are lovely, but i think a bit unbalanced in one colorway i am using. the mauve seems to go on forever. if i had purchased extra yardage, i would have just shortened it. the balance in the black, gray and white is just perfect!

                  Comments about Kauni Effekt:

                  This is a harsh and unpleasant yarn to use. It had hay and plastic baling twine in the wool it was spun from, and that wool is quite harsh to the touch. The color transitions appear to have been created by spinning different color wools, and they are very well done. I bought it for a specific pattern created by another designer, and the resulting scarf is quite pretty. I've not quite finished it, and can only hope that after washing and using hair conditioner with it, it will soften up a bit.

                  I bought my yarn at the store. The service was exceptional and included recommendations to local (excellent) eateries. I am sad that I do not live close enough to visit often but I make a point of stopping in whenever we visit New England.

                      I'm doing my first entrelac project using this yarn because it was recommended by the pattern. I love the color, the texture and the weight of the yarn. It is a nice introduction to a yarn I've never used. I'm sure I will be ordering more in the future.
