A little on the thin side, but beautiful

The color of this yarn is breathtaking! I can only fault it for being thin. A #3 needle may be more suitable...but whatever the case I'm buying more.

I first encountered this yarn at my LYS, and fell in love with it immediately. Didn't buy right away, but left such an impression on me it wasn't long before I bought myself a few balls.

Beautiful color, lovely sheen, so soft and squishy. And yes, it is NOT DK weight... more like fingering (light, even). I can't tell you about drape because I have yet to find a pattern that I can work with this yarn. While it is a beautiful yarn, I don't know if it's just me or what, but I have the hardest time with it. Very splitty and just doesn't handle well. I keep finding patterns, try the Folio, only to frog it not many rows in. Even when using #3 or #4 needles...

As a ball, it is beautiful yarn. But what good is the yarn if I can't make it into something?

    Read reviews that it split while knitting but I haven't had any issues. May be because I use Addi Turbo Needles. They are brass tips. Don't think wood would work as well

    Haven't started the projects yet, but was extremely disappointed in the colors once the yarn arrived. The silver/gray color was a bright baby blue!

    Beautiful color and so soft! I made a sweater for someone with sensitive skin and they can wear it without any irritation. It is on the thinner side- I probably wouldn't call it DK- but thanks to the other reviewers I was expecting it and adjusted my needle size to compensate.
    It can be kind of split-y for the first row or two but once I worked out the tension it really wasn't a problem

      Comments about Read more about this yarn on our blog where education manager, Amy G., talks about looking forward to spring! Folio:

      I can't knit this yarn because it splits so much it's really frustrating. It's a pity, because it feels so good. So now I'm wondering what to do with a sweater's worth of it!

      Incredibly soft but NOT DK weight

      Pros

      • Drapes Beautifully
      • Soft

      Cons

      • Splits Easily

      Best Uses

      • Scarf
      • Shawl

      Comments about Read more about this yarn on our blog where education manager, Amy G., talks about looking forward to spring! Folio:

      This is the softest yarn I've ever worked with. But it's not a DK weight, as advertised. I would describe it as light fingering weight, suited to #3 or #2 needle. Tends to split easily. But makes a beautiful shawl or scarf.

        This is not 11 WPI ore like 14-15. I would classify it as a fingering weight yarn.
