      I loved this yarn, I made a great Ipad cover for it and lined it with cotton fabric and made gross grain ribbon ties for it. It is a great weight but feels light in the hands and has stitch definition galore and is soft to the touch.

      I bought 6 skeins of Blue Lagoon to make a Mondo Cable Cardi by Chic Knits. As with many super-wash yarns, the washed swatch did grow some so be sure to complete a full-sized swatch to obtain proper gauge. I alternated two skeins every other row, but the intensity of the dyes was so different between skeins that the sleeves are noticeably lighter. Knots were in three skeins, one of which had three knots. This is a particularly bad problem in a super-wash wool with a sweater knitted in one piece because it is difficult to splice the yarn and difficult to invisibly weave in the ends.

      Any one of these issues alone might have been acceptable, but in a premium yarn, it is really unsatisfactory. I emailed the manufacturer, but never received a response. The sweater is soft and comfortable, and I hope I forget the process of knitting the yarn soon. The problems would be less noticeable in small projects or multi-colored projects. Lighter colors may bleed less.

        Comments about Dream in Color Classy:

        I've only used one color so far, the blue, and when I work with it, I have blue tension fingers and a bluish tint to my hands. A tad over dyed. I am annoyed I'll have to rinse in vinegar water and re-rinse but in this case the juice is worth the squeeze.

          Comments about Dream in Color Classy:

          This was the first time I'd ever bought a Dream In Colour yarn and I have to say, it's so beautiful. I bought the colourway "Happy Forest" it is such a vibrant green, much more beautiful than the photo. The yarn was soft and squishy but solid feeling, like it wouldn't fall apart at the drop of a hat.

          So far it has withstood pilling. I made it into a hat for my partner and he has worn it almost every day for the past month, it's still in great shape. The pattern I used had twisted rib and the stitch definition was beautiful. This yarn would be great for cables.

          I highly recommend this to everyone. It's totally gorgeous.

            I love using Classy for baby items that have a simple pattern, because the color variations create a beautiful look. Different skeins work together well. It's a versatile weight, and it's washable.

              I chose this yarn after reviewing the project I was planning on Ravelry. It was a perfect choice. The yarn knitted up really well and the jacket has been much admired. I would certainly use this yarn again.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Excellent service product was back ordered. Email communication responses were prompt, informative and courteous.

                            I'm using this yarn to knit Switchback (I believe I found it via Twist Collective) and it's knitting up beautifully. I ended up knitting 85% of the sweater, and accidentally (with a puppy's help) frogging the whole thing back to the first stitch. The yarn knit up the same the second time as it did the first! In a good way - no splitting, twisting, unraveling, or kinking. I love this yarn.
