    Extremely Soft & No Bleeding

      Comments about Mirasol Ushya:

      I'm extremely pleased with many aspects of this yarn. It's extremely soft. It's warm. It's not itchy against my scalp (I have a shaved head.) My hat was comprised of "1700 White Clouds", "1709 Midnight Blue" and "1704 Charcoal Grey"; I experienced absolutely no bleeding of colors after a 30-minute soak (see attached before and after photos)

      I also had to frog my hat after I realized my modified pattern wasn't quite right, and the yarn was as good as new for a second attempt.

      The hanks I received (four in total) contained no knots, and I had zero problems spinning them into cakes.

        I bought this yarn because there was a free pattern for an easy hat that used the yarn. I love it! Nice texture knits fast and feels great when you wear it. I highly recommend it.

        Comments about Mirasol Ushya:

        I am working with this yarn for the second time. The first project I made with it was a cowl over a year ago, and it's seen heavy use. Despite the fact that I have worn that cowl a lot both alone and under jackets, there's no pilling, no compaction, no loss of stitch definition. I hand wash it and block it and it looks brand new.

          Great yarn but I had ordered too many projects at once and had to return it. I'll definitely order this year should I need another project.

              Found a cape pattern on Rav that I wanted to knit which called for a UK yarn that I am unfamiliar with. Researched other superbulkies online but wasn't happy with them. Then I went to the LYS and discovered this yarn, which has a beautiful soft hand, gorgeous subtle heathering, it's sproingy, affordable, and - well - for a superbulky, it's perfect! I'll definitely buy more for future projects.

                Comments about Mirasol Ushya:

                I used the yarn for a blanket and it knit up beautifully. It cabled well and because of the constuction there is a minimum of pilling. It is light weight for a bulky yarn so the blanket will not feel too heavy.
