      Comments about 11.95 Fresco:

      I've use this yarn for shawls and sweaters and I just love it. The softness of the fabric is wonderful, much softer than the wrapped up skein feels. The items I've made have also kept their shape nicely. This is one of my very favorite yarns. I'd love to see some tonal colors in this yarn.
      This is a light sport weight yarn (or a heavy fingering).

          I bought this for a felted project, and I was delighted by how well it felted. And it knits very crisply and cleanly, as I discovered when using it for a fair isle hat.

                  Made a child's cardigan using this yarn. It's incredibly soft and lovely to knit with. It was thinner than expected, but I was still able to use it. I think this yarn would be great for shawls and delicate lace designs. I'm thinking of buying more colors. Highly recommend!

                    I love this yarn. It's soft but has enough body to hold a textured pattern/cable. It's fine for wearing next to skin even for picky people : ) My only negative is all 3 colors I've ordered are quite a bit darker than the website pics. (I haven't found that to be a problem with other yarns on webs.) I just received 4 skeins of Cinder and it is much darker.

                    I used it doubled with Noro Silk Garden for a scarf/wrap and it works well with funkier/variegated/thick and thin yarns.
