S. Charles Natalia is an exquisitely soft and lofty bulky-weight chainette which creates deceptively lightweight garments. The merino wool and angora blend also has a touch of nylon for strength. It features a subtle halo and soft hand, and is available in lush, jewel-tone colors. Made in Italy
I really love this yarn! However, the listing of this as bulky weight is deceiving. I compared this yarn with a few other bulky weight yarns that I have in my yarn stash, and this looks and feels considerably less bulky. It is more like an heavy worsted/aran weight, much closer to worsted than bulky. I went up two needle sizes from what was recommended to try match my pattern's gauge, and it still didn't come out right. If I use needles any bigger, my project will start looking lacy! Given the simplicity of the slippers I am working on, I may try to just wing increasing the number of stitches, but that, of course, wouldn't necessarily work for a more complicated project.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
