I wish I could give this yarn 5 stars but the description of slobby texture is due to thin/thick twisting of the yarn. There are areas where the thread is not twisted at all. I thought it was a single anomaly but it repeatedly showed up. It will effect your gauge so be aware of it. Also, I had to use #4 needle to get the gauge but that maybe my issue. Otherwise I'm am pleased with the results.

Knitted a wonderful short sleeve sweater with lace edging. Knitted well and stitches were beautiful. After rinsing in cold water, the dye bled horribly. Hung it to dry and the color ran on a towel and once dry the sweater looked tie dyed!!! I was horrified!!! I had a partial ball left and purposefully ran it in hot water to bleed it and try to redye the sweater. It worked, but I'm afraid only temporarily. It is now instead of striped, it's blotchy. Not as noticable and I did wear it to the office. I've gotten several good comments, so hopefully not a total loss. I will not purchase this yarn again. all skeins came from the same dye lot.

    Comments about 6.99 Firefly:

    Second time using Firefly. Seems to be less "sheen" than yarn I used in 2011 so perhaps quality of viscose has changed. Nice sport weight gauge at 22x32 on US 5's. Making the Ombré Tank pattern on Ravelry. Color selection needs to be increased on WEBS offerings.

        I specifically purchased this yarn to knit the firefly tunic (pattern found on ravelry). I am an experienced knitter, and have a good sense of tension. So far, I am not pleased with how this fibre is knitting up in this project...looks as thought a beginner is knitting. I sure hope once my tunic is finished blocking can help. I may not work with this yarn again.

              I purchased this yarn to add to my warping yarns and it work much better than I thought it would. Did a bit of shedding but it survived the entire weaving process.

                  This yarn was a very lovely surprise. It feels so coarse and stiff before you knit it. Just knitting with it softened it up tremendously and after washing and blocking it is a fantastically light and flowing, soft and cool summer top. I would definitely use this again for summer tops. It blocks nicely and shows stich definition quite well. I knitted 'Jordan' which is a lacey top and it is quite beautiful. The finished garment has a sheen that is not noticeable when the yarn is in the skein.

                      I used this for a shawl for my daughter who happens to be vertically challenged (like her mother) and so I did not make it as long or as wide as the pattern.
                      I am planning to make two more shawls using Firefly for less vertically challenged ladies so will follow pattern as written.
                      It knits up evenly and I am very pleased.

                          I designed a 2-skein spring/summer crocheted scarf with this yarn. I worked a lacy pattern at a fairly loose gauge and was really happy with the resulting size and drape (8" x 72" + fringe).
                          I chose this yarn because I have knit with it in the past.
