        This yarn does the work for you.

        By stitchin' witch

        from pennsatucky

        This yarn looks beautiful knitted in the round, and is among the softest wool blends I've ever used.

        The only criticism I would have is that when you're knitting something that takes more than one skein, the second skein doesn't start off where the first left off, so there's just a slight repeat in the pattern. This really isn't a big deal though, and I highly recommend this yarn.

        • Socks Work Up Great

        I love this yarn! I have knitted 15 pairs of socks with this and it knits up like a Nordic sweater all on its own. When I give the socks as gifts people go crazy! This yarn does not split and is so wonderful to knit with. I would recommend it to all!

        Having fun making kids sweaters

        By emorgan46

        from Lincoln, MA

        Pros

        • The Pattern And Colors

        Cons

        • Acrylic - I'm S Yarn Snob

        Best Uses

          I loved knitting baby sweaters with the Knitcol Adriafil but the pattern doesn't work with larger sizes. This tapestry yarn is perfect for kids instead of babies. It is also thicker/warmer.

          I am using this yarn to make a chevron afghan and find it so easy to use. The recommended hook size I is very good. Have had no problems at all working with this yarn. Does not split like a lot of others I have used. It is a pleasure working with it. Have ordered 2 different colors to also use for afghans.
