I like this yarn very much and will be buying,more of it when I can. The colors are lovely and rather than having a distinct stripe, they fade nicely from one color to the next. I'm only sorry that my project didn't show that off as well as a different type of pattern would have. I love yarn of this weight for crochet, as,the finished product doesn't get too bulky. I agree that mostly it is somewhere in between fingering and dk, my yarn changed a bit in thickness throughout the ball, but overall the yarn was thicker than I expected having read the previous reviews here. And I don't at all understand saying it breaks easily. Mine, at least, was perfectly fine for normal hand knit or crochet use. For me, this yarn was exactly what I hoped for and there was nothing I didn't like about it.

Not DK

Very pretty colors, but although this yarn is labeled as DK, it really isn't. It's very thin, more like light fingering. Therefore, I couldn't use it for my project.

A Lovely Yarn

By Poka Gal

from Loachapoka, Alabama

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Lovely Feel
  • Vivid Color Change

Cons

  • A Bit "webby"

Best Uses

  • A Crocheted Cowl

Comments about Louisa Harding Amitola:

This is a lovely yarn with a good feel and vivid color change. The only thing I do not like about it is that it is just a little webby feeling due to the 20% silk content. And, it is very sticky when frogging. I am, however, delighted in the results of my project

      Beautiful, Long Colorway

      By lizziemac2

      from Fresno CA

      Comments about Louisa Harding Amitola:

      I love this yarn. Working on my second cowl with this and hope to create a pair of fingerless mitts and/or a slouchy beanie.
      I used two different colorways to create the Inspira Steampunk Cowl found (for free) on Ravelry.

      I haven't had a chance to start knitting with it yet but the color and gradations in the dye exceeded my expectations. Very soft hand.

          Beautiful colorways!

          By Holly

          from Glendale, CA

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Louisa Harding Amitola:

          This yarn is not super soft and squishy, it is a little stiff, but will be good for items that need stitch definition, such as patterns. I don't recommend it for scarves or something next to the neck skin, as it is a little scratchy, however, would be fantastic for shawls, mittens, hats or other outer garments. I love the color choices - I had a hard time choosing which one to buy.

            Beautiiful colour. Not DK, very thin and easy to break. Unfortunately, I bought 3 Different colour sets ( 5 balls each) . I finish the 1st project, don't know what to do with the rest ( 10 balls) .
