      Comments about SMC Juvel:

      I purchased this yarn for a tailored sweater. DK was my preference because it is a forgiving weight - usually hiding splices. This yarn, however, has so many joining knots in each skein, my splices are extremely noticeable. For each 106m skein, I have found an average of 2 joins. I have yet to find a skein that is 106 meters of continuous yarn. In addition, the raw skein is extremely coarse and scratchy. I am hoping that the first wash will yield a wearable sweater, but I fear that I am wasting a lot of time on this project.

        Comments about SMC Juvel:

        This is a very good, strong yarn. It feels a bit heavier than other DK yarns I have used, but it holds the stitches rather well. I consider this yarn a "workhorse" yarn because of the weight of the yarn, but it's still wonderful to work with.

        Comments about SMC Juvel:

        These are great little balls of yarn. I bought 3 different colors and so far used two of them for a baby hat which blocked out very soft and nice. I am using the gray for a shawl and the yarn feels a little course, but I am assuming (hoping) it will block out a soft and nice as the other colors.

            Bought this to use in a baby blanket. This yarn was on sale so I got it to use with Valley Yarn Superwash DK. It knits well with this yarn. I would have bought additional yarns but the colors on sale were limited.
            I will say that I LOVE Valley Yarn Superwash DK, but at 1/2 price this yarn is acceptable.

            I made a Baby's jacket out of it,for which it is fine,since it is outerware.It is not soft enough for a garment worn touching skin,in my opinion.

              This yarn has a very nice texture. At first it felt a little coarse but softened up after knitting with it. I am using this yarn to knit a striped scarf for my grandson.

                Knit fingerless gloves for the menfolk.
                Color is strong.
                Weight is light enough for manipulating in gloves, but sturdy enough to put up with some rough wear and tear and not be scratchy on the skin.
                Useful and warm, but not for pretty things.

                My granddaughter (age 8) asked me to buy this because she loved the color. I mistakenly thought it would be comfortable against bare skin, but it felt coarse when I was knitting with it, and when I had her look at it, she loved the color but made a yucky face when she felt the texture. I decided to order a merino wool yarn in a similar color and start over.
