Colors are much darker than shown on line. First skein ran short. working on second skein to see if is also short yardage. Will not be able to add fringe to top that I am making. Yes I crocheted to gauge.


great color, awful construction of the yarn

Doesn’t split and creates a nice variegated fabric

It is for finishing a project that is already started. It s perfect.

I love the colors of this yarn. The weight is light for summer. Drapes well. The only thing is that it does split sometimes. You just have to take it slow. I would recommend this yarn to anyone.


Perfect match for the Modern Cotton for my Gioia top!


Beautiful colors. Easy with which to work. Love the texture.


Purchased for class: Introduction to Rigid Heddle Flip Loom Weaving with Martha Young. Very happy with how this variegated yarn weaved up. Has little nobbies, so gave scarf a bit of texture. Instructor provided samples of yarns knitted vs weaving. Very different outcome, but colors showed through in each of her examples.


I am knitting the Etta tee in Mint. It's just beautiful. But my complaint with this yarn is spending hours untangling it, whether I start from the outside or the inside, it just doesn't matter! Aargh! I suggest that you try winding it on your winder first in hopes to avoid this mess!


I bought the pretty Mint color. I love the colors in it. I'm knitting Etta, a cute summer tshirt. It's coming out nicely. This yarn is not the easiest to knit with, though , due to the uneven nature of it and that it has no give. But it will be a beautiful shirt when I'm done.
