      wow I LOVE this yarn .If I could afford it, I would make everything from here on out from this yarn. So soft and thick and the depth of the colors-- I got piedras and its amazing the range of colors within it, all the shades and speckled tones of ripening fruit. It doesnt fray or shed like some single ply supers you can even pull out and reknit several times and no shedding or fuzzies AT ALL, stays smooth and shiny.

      I wanted this yarn after seeing a project made with it at my local yarn store, but the yarn I received barely looks like the same colorway I first saw in the store. Color is much duller.

        Love this yarn. So soft, thick, and warm! I made a long sleeved cardi with it. I had to adjust the size and pull it apart the first time. I noticed that after I pulled it out that the yarn started shedding

            A joy to work with, especially for cowls. Every stitch is a new excitement of color.

              This skein of Rasta was not as bulky/thick as another color of same yarn I'd previously purchased. Disappointed, but i'll make cowl anyway.

                I am in love with this yarn. The colors are brilliant,the yarn is super soft, it knits up quickly, and with one hank you can knit up a stunning scarf. The only downside is that due to its popularity they run out of stock quickly. My advice is if you see the color you want is available purchase it immediately because tomorrow it probably won't be there.

                      I LOVE this yarn, it be jammin'...

                          This yarn does all the work. The simplest of patterns looks gorgeous because the colors are so nice. I've had numerous complements on a simple cowl made with this yarn. I'd like to make several more!

                              I received 3 skeins of this yarn in the same die lot and they were WORLDS apart from each other. Not impressed at all, and WEBS shouldn't have sent them out that way.
