Since this comes in hanks, be prepared to hand turn your swift, otherwise you will be stretcing this rubbery yarn out of shape. I was so turned off by its rubber bandy-iness, I donated it to a fiber arts center, perhaps a weaver can figure out how to use it. Should've returned it. Bought it at retail with the discount. Ouch.
I was looking for a less expensive alternative for berroco north star and happened upon this yarn. It worked out well for the scarf pattern I was using, even though it was not quite the same weight. The colors are lovely. I am always looking for yarns and patterns I can recommend to friends who are beginners and this yarn would be top of my list for someone who has the basics down and now wants to stretch out a bit. It is easy to work with and the finished product looks fabulous even with a super easy pattern.
