Heavenly!!

      • Scarves Shawls Lace

      I bought this specifically for shawls, and it has not disappointed me. I did a test piece, with 5,7 & 9 loop nupps. The nupps were consistently perfect and very easy to execute. I just finished a shawl with an Estonian lace border. This yarn blocks nicely, and the nupps stay in place. The colors are lovely, vibrant. My one criticism is that occasionally there was a fuzzy clump on the strand. But I was able to remove them easily and continue.

      lovely yarn

      By heather

      from colorado

      Pros

      • Good Yardage
      • Nice Sheen
      • Soft

      Cons

      • Irregularities

      Best Uses

      • Crochet
      • Lace

      This is a gorgeous yarn, great texture, easy to work with, and you get a lot of yardage for the money. I made a tunisian crochet shawl and really couldn't be happier with the end product. You need to be a little careful if you have to rip anything back as it's a little fuzzy, but overall it was very easy to work with. I took off one star for the irregularities, but overall I'd be happy to use this yarn again. The ivory color is about perfect, incidentally, not too white, not too yellow.

      Loved It

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Good yardage

      Cons

        Best Uses

          I purchased 1 to use for a test knit of a lace shawl The yarn was perfect and the test knit turned out beautiful. I found nothing wrong with this yarn and would easily use it in the future. I wore the shawl to visit hubby's 99 year old Ausnt Cuba and I decided to let it live with her. So I must make myself another one.

          Very nice to knit with!

          By BarbS

          from Pierre, SD

          Pros

          • Nice Stitch definition

          Cons

          • knots easily

          Best Uses

            I'm using this for a lace cardigan, and I love the fabric I'm getting, and the stitch definition. It is a "sticky" yarn, so it knots itself if you aren't careful, but I will definitely use it again. Especially since it is such a great price!

            • Lace

            i started making an estonian style lace shawl with nupps ... i tried to make the nupps so many times, but the yarn would not tighten up and hold the nupp. also, in the first 6" of knitting i found 2 occurrences where the yarn thickened to twice the width.
