        Comments about Queensland Collection Caracara:

        I'm using this to knit a lace scarf. It's a pattern I've used before but with a different yarn. It's a nice color way and nice yarn but know that it is not as robust as some mohair and will not work well with a larger gauge needle.

            Comments about Queensland Collection Caracara:

            I love the vibrant colors, and the long color shifts. That makes for a very graceful looking garment. This yarn was very reasonable with great yardage. I would buy it again for another garment.

                  I'm using it to make a wall hanging/or drape for my ugly filing cabinet.
                  Easy to take out if only taking out one row at a time.

                  Comments about Queensland Collection Caracara:

                  I used this yarn for the cover lace shawl. Colors are perfect . The yarn is typical kid mohair (although not much of it is real wool). Price is very good. Hard to rip out, so knit slowly especially in lace. Stitches love to bond with each other, so count each row carefully to be sure you don't have a "hanger on" stitch.

                    Really hard to work with

                    By celtic engineer

                    from Cincinnati OH

                    Comments about Queensland Collection Caracara:

                    It's like working with very sticky thread. The mohair part is so minimal, you only have the thread-fine core to work with - end up needing 20 st/inch. The colors are so good, I'm really disappointed.If you were into really fine lace, you might like it.
