I have used this for knitted necklaces and for a mixed fiber necklace. The colors are stunning on the the yarn as is; I am going to try using it as a wrap on fabric beads next. IThe fact that it doesn't fray or untwist when cut makes it a great choice for many fiber crafts.

Jungle is more chartreuse than I thought it would be

I am using the product for an adult women's vest size 2XL. The hand is nice. the weight is appropriate for my garment.

      Comments about SMC Solavita:

      I did love using this yarn. Although, because it's chainette it unravels if there is damage to the yarn.

      Bought two colors though and I've already finished one project and it looks great.

            I like working with this yarn. It comes already to start. There was no need to wind the yarn into a ball. My only complaint is that it is not as stretchy as I was expecting but I can't blame it on the vendor. The yarn is cotton. I should have expected that.

                  Comments about SMC Solavita:

                  Ordered the Fire combination and it is beautiful. Started a cowl (note the started) that I have to begin again because of a twist when joining that was not visible until after completing a few rows. At over 200 stitches, it is disheartening but I love the yarn. The colors are beautiful and the yarn is very easy to work with. I look forward to restarting my project and wearing the cowl in the fall.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Fast, reliable delivery.

                        I loved working with this yarn. Not usually a fan of acrylic content but even at 49% this yarn was very pleasant. It was easy to work with, has a beautiful feel and knits up beautifully. I made two hats with it, one mixing it with another all-cotton yarn. they both came out lovely, the one with all Solavita has a nice light drapey feel to it. The color striping is beautiful.

                            Knits up really pretty though the pattern repeat is not random enough. It has a beautiful smooth feel when knitting and knits up into a beautiful drapey fabric. Not a fan of acrylic usually but the high acrylic content is no problem here.

                                  I make blankets with mixed types of yarn, so this was mixed in with other yarns sizes 4, 5, and 6. It was easy to work with, and the striping adds a lot of visual interest. I love the turquoise color!

                                  This yarn has such beautiful color combinations, I just can't take my eyes away from it! Three color stripes on each thread makes it fashionable, chic and attractive. This will work great on a summer crop top or scarf, or even skirt.
