      I had purchased the same yarn from another source and was amazed that not only did the color look great with what I already had but was from the same dye lot!

        Comments about SMC Select Violena Colori:

        I loved the texture and light weight of this yarn as it was worked. Holds shape and drapes beautifully, great stitch definition. I made a summer top with slightly puffed short sleeves and lace on front neckline. It gathers, puffs, drapes, and hangs great. I am in love with this yarn!

        This DK yarn knits a nice, elegant size stitch with size 6 needles. Drapes beautifully, looks very professional. Only wish is for light pastel colors for summer.

            Ordered a test ball....knit two large swatches on size 6 and size 8 needles. Enjoyed it so much that I made very, very large swatches as it felt nice to the touch. Immediately ordered 11 more balls for a planned sweater for me after the holiday knitting is done.

              Comments about SMC Select Violena Colori:

              I'm using this to make a little girls summer top. The colors are muted, not bright, which is a nice switch from the usual primary colors I use for kid's knits. I had to tear out and reknit the first few rows and the yarn didn't split at all. My sample had no shrinkage (hand wash, dry flat which is how her mom usually washes knits). So far, I'm happy with this yarn.
