What to do with this?

By Linda

from New Zealand

Pros

  • Soft And Silky

Cons

  • Splits

Best Uses

    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

    By Lizzie

    from Florida

    Pros

    • Drapes Beautifully
    • Soft

    Cons

    • Splits Easily

    Best Uses

    • Scarf
    • Shawl

    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.

    So beautful, and yet...

    By ISheen19

    from Tucson, AZ

    Pros

    • Sheen
    • Soft

    Cons

    • Splitty

    Best Uses

      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?

      A little on the thin side, but beautiful

      By LadyBug

      from Santa Rosa, CA

      See all my reviews

      Pros

      • Knits easily
      • Rich In Saturated Color
      • Soft against the skin
      • Very Soft Silky

      Cons

      • Very Fine Yarn

      Best Uses

      • Ribbed Summer Sweater
      • The Berroco Wrap

      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.

      Not true DK weight

      By Leenie

      from Ct

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