I made knitted shawls, cowls and scarves, on needles sized 5-9, for a somewhat loose to very loose, lacey effect. All were beautiful, but it was especially gorgeous when knitted up on the smaller needles, because the richness of the yarn was more apparent. This yarn has a very soft hand and is a treat to work with. The finished fabric is luxurious and elegant, and could be used with evening wear or to elevate casual wear. The variegation of the dyeing makes it shimmery, not striped, and not nubby. I was concerned when I rec'd the yarn and saw that there were areas of very deep color and a few, but distinct, areas of yarn that seemed nearly colorless. I was afraid of having unattractive light stripes in the finished products, but the lengths of color are fairly short, so I had no striping and the lighter areas of the yarn gave a lovely shimmer and blended in beautifully without standing out. The fine gauge of the yarn and soft hand and drape makes lovely open work, but cables don't particularly stand out. There is some variation in the thickness of the yarn, which provides nice life to open patterns, but someone wanting a very uniform surface for flat knitting or cables may want to consider a more uniform yarn. The colors in Blue Hawaii are very much like those in deep tropical water: indescribably beautiful blues and greens, without being too much of either.This is great yarn, and I so enjoyed handling it that it was sad to put it away when the article was finished.

I used this to knit a shawl and was in love until I hit my first knot. This yarn cannot be properly spliced due to the nature of the spin and only two ply. After that frustration, I hit a knot just a couple yards later, so I had unknit and cut out that whole chunk putting me back to square one. At this price I think it is unreasonable. Contacting the company, I was informed that the industry allows for four knots, so I should consider myself lucky.

Comments about Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20:

I used this yarn to make socks using a pattern I created for Koigu. It seems very nice and is super soft. Not one knot. I used two colors and had no trouble splicing the second color into the first. The colors are gorgeous!

One caveat: while the two skeins I ordered in the same color are consistent with one another, other colors are notably different from the photos shown on the website. The "roses" color has green in it, for example. I do not mind the colors I received at all, but they are not what I expected.

I don't know yet how the yarn will hold up through washing etc., but I have to say that after avoiding sock yarns with nylon for twenty years, this one might make me a convert.

            I have made both socks and shawls with Serenity 20 and always have a skein or two around for future projects. I love the colorways, that is the main attraction. It does not hurt, however, that it is soft and durable and easy to knit with and sometimes surprises me with stripes and other times with random colors that look like a painted desert at sunset. It is just gorgeous.

              I really enjoyed working with this yarn. Have since ordered more. Frosted lilac is gorgeous! Many compliments. I frogged twice and no problems. Very soft and squishy. Feels like it has more cashmere than it says on the label. I suggest you use a stitch like brioche to get the max softness. My new favorite scarf. Light and warm.

                  Excellent quality with rich colors. Knitting produces a cashmere halo that adds to the lovely, soft hand. Beware of the color swatches; my Black Pearl arrived a darker taupey/toasty brown.
