    It is a simple and soft yarn, I made a hat with leaf motifs out of it, it works good with 5.5 mm size needles as well as less such as 4 mm. I bought two colors on sale and I know I will go back for another color. Colors are extremely rich and shiny, the tan color has a lot of "substance",or I should say character in it.

    I'm using this yarn to make a throw blanket to keep in my living room. It's super soft and very evenly colored but about 2/3 of the way through casting on, the yarn broke. I wasn't manhandling it by any means so I was a little shocked. I started over and have been handling it with extra care but I wonder if it will happen again. I'll keep using it because I love the texture and color but I hope it holds up!

      Comments about S.Charles Collezione Tinka:

      Used this on a transatlantic flight to make a large infinity scarf/cowl. Lots of enthusiastic comments from the flight attendants! Soft and warm; feels quite luxurious. The yarn is very soft, so would not recommend for 'rugged' wear. Very pleased with it, and will use again.

          Comments about S.Charles Collezione Tinka:

          So far I have used this yarn to make a small bag and a man's vest. It worked well for both projects. The only problem I had is that if you knit too fast, you risk splitting the yarn with the needle which leaves a really funky finish on your fabric.

                This is an incredibly soft yarn that is easy to work with. I used it for a baby blanket and it showed stitch pattern wonderfully. It is definitely an heirloom quality gift that should last years with the right care. I am thinking of making a wrap out of it for myself, it is so scrumptious!
