You'll love the fun print colors, durability and quality of My First Regia Prints for socks, booties, sweaters and more. Made in Italy.
I got this for baby socks, not realizing how small the skein was. My bad! Then I thought maybe a preemie hat ... It has bright, vibrant colors but it's rather scratchy. I don't think I'd give this to a preemie baby. Maybe I'll knit socks for a doll or something.

The yarn was nice, but the colors were really different from one ball to the next even though they said they were from the same lot. I suppose the person packing the box could have tried to find two that at least looked similar, but ended up making a baby hat in deep blues and vivid greens and a pair of baby socks in pastels.
Of the six skeins of the "Kevin" (blues, beige and aqua) print ordered, one was completely missing the dark blue "punch" color and another only had about 6 inches of the dark blue near one end of the skein: one third of the yarn thus not as described or pictured. This made it necessary to blend the skeins while knitting. Also, it would be helpful if Regia would specify which solids coordinate with which prints.
i really can't think of anything negative about this yarn. the colors are so nice. i'm using this yarn for baby socks for gifts, and it's knitting up beautifully. i pull my yarn really hard to (try to) prevent ladders when i knit in the round, and this yarn withstands the pulling well. i haven't had any trouble with splitting.

I made a mistake ordering this yarn because I didn't read the description thoroughly. It was a very small skein, and I wanted to make socks. I didn't want to return it and get something else, because I love everything about this yarn, and the color was "me!" So, I decided to order more instead! I emailed WEBs and asked if it was possible to match the dye lot, which they did! I was VERY pleased, as I always am when I order from WEBs!! This yarn is so soft, and is exactly what I want to feel on my feet!
