I use this yarn for easy scarves and my standby, the La-La Simple Shawl. I live in the Southern US, but cotton yarn usually hurts my hands. This doesn't. I also like Cascade Tangier, but it sheds like a llama. This doesn't. Others complain about splitting and breaking, but I've never had that problem. Part of the reason is probably that I always use at least a #9 needle with it for an open look AND I don't go for remotely complex patterns on shawls or scarves. The twisting is not as much of a problem if I wind with a swift and ball winder and pull from the center. Even so, there are MANY yarns a lot twistier, so I don't mind this.

I received 2 skeins in a 'mystery' bag and purchased a third to complete the shrug I was making. All three skeins had the same problems. Thickness is listed as Worsted but ran from lace to roving and I frequently had issues with it pulling apart forcing me to rip out stitches to weave in new ends. It twisted up frequently no matter what I tried to prevent it. I also found pieces of hay throughout all three skeins, some as long as a 1/4". As most of the pieces had clearly been dyed it wasn't a case of picking it up from a display setting. This was the worst yarn I've ever worked with.

Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

The self-striping yarn played a big role in the design. Several friends saw what I had done with the yarn and immediately wanted to order yarn to make their own all season vest--- front and back knitted the same. By knitting small sections and knitting the sections together, the colors pile up in unexpected combinations. It was intriguing.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

        As I was preparing to use this I realized that it broke easily, and on closer examination was able to break it with my fingertips a quarter inch apart. Usually it takes my arm strength to break a piece of yarn. I cannot imagine that this would wear well.

              I knit socks
              Love the colours
              The yarn shreds and pulls apart as I'm knitting
              Some of the strands are reduced to the circumference of a very fine thread and I fear my socks will let loose and break out in holes. The yarn is unstable. Though I just ordered 5 more balls of the yarn a few days ago, the 2 balls I've worked with since placing my order are problematic and I will not use or order anymore of this yarn.
