This yarn was used to teach continuous strand weaving. It was a a bit too stiff and "stuck" together a little, making the hand weaving a little difficult. However, the colors blended nicely and the end result was beautiful. It did "full" well, making a nice feeling soft shawl.

I knit a cardigan with front eyelet panels in this yarn. It was a poor choice, as the inconsistancy between the hand-dyed skeins led to a finished garment with lots of flashing and pooling. To add to the problem there were panels of an eyelet stitch on the fronts of the sweater. The yarn itself has a dry hand, no stretch and a rustic quality to it. It was a poor choice for a garment but a more appropriate choice for 1 skein accessories!

  • Mock Turtle Neck Sweater

Comments about "" Rinihue:

I will use this wool/silk yarn for a featured sweater. Good discount on this yarn, and good fiber combination. Color variants are also similar to those shown in original pattern/photo. I am very pleased with the yarn (though it will be a fall project; haven't started yet), and the fine service and yarn options and discounts. Great ease of use when purchasing. I am very pleased with yarn.com!

Interesting yarn

By 

from New Jersey

Pros

  • Beautiful colors

Cons

  • Odd texture

Best Uses

  • Linen Stitch

Comments about "" Rinihue:

I found several different colors at reduced price and I tried hats and scarves but found this wool/silk blend not elastic enough and too scratchy for these uses. I wanted to make use of the amazing colors. Finally found a home for it when swatching to learn linen stitch. Using 2 or 3 colorways and knitted tight on 7 or 8 US needles, it makes a velvet like surface with strength and depth. I am working on small accessories (glasses case, phone case) and may try a handbag.

    Love the yarn but the colours are very dull compared to the way they are represented in the pics. Wouldn't buy again.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Great service from Webs as always, parcel seemed to be marooned in customs for quite a while.

    Love it!

    By 

    from Nashville, TN

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about "" Rinihue:

    I absolutely love the look and feel of the yarn, its quick color changes make for very colorful garments. Given that it is a hand-dyed yarn, I expected more variability from skein to skein than I saw (ordered 6 skeins), which is great.

    Like some other silk blends I've used, it can feel tough on your hands to knit with, but it blocks beautifully with a gorgeous drape.

    Beautiful color, Not a good product

    By 

    from Woonsocket, Rhode Island

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Color Is Only Benefit

    Cons

    • Fibre Texture Is Rough

    Best Uses

    • Wash cloths

    Comments about "" Rinihue:

    I purchased this yarn to make a cowl. I have knitted 7 inches in the recommended size needle and it's too big. It is a rough textured material and has little to no drape. I do not believe that I will continue with the project because I don't believe it will be worn by the intended user. I am very dissapointed. The description did not do a good job of detailing the exact composition of the fibre. I would not recommend nor buy this product again.

    Comments about "" Rinihue:

    If you knit two skeins at once, alternating rows, it minimizes the color variation

    Comments about "" Rinihue:

    The colors were significantly darker then expected.I understand that colors are different varying on monitor. But the difference is great between the bright colors I wanted and the dark dull colors I received. It is also very rough and itchy, I could hardly stand it touching my skin while I worked with it. Since the colors didn't work for the planned project; I worked one ball as a gift for my sister and I have no clue what to with the other now.

    Difficult to Discern Colors

    Pros

    • Lovely Lovely Yarn
    • Wish Colors More Accurate

    Cons

    • Wish I had more time

    Best Uses

    • Any

    Comments about "" Rinihue:

    Lovely and beautiful yarn. Have not decided yet, maybe socks. Wish colors could be more accurate to actual product, but will not be returning any. Would love swatches of particular groups as I live in Florida and it is difficult to find large collections of yarns.
