I purchased this yarn to make an all season cable sweater for my brother who lives in Denver. This was the first time I knitted with organic cotton or a cotton wool blend and I was nervously intrigued. I found it was as soft as many wools and offered the great stitch definition cotton yarns are known for. The color was great. I bought this in 'natural' for my brother, and I'm already contemplating what color I'll buy for knitting a guernsey sweater for myself. I was so enthusiastic about this yarn I knitted it by candlelight for the 6 nights we were without power thanks to Hurricane Irene. My biggest issue was thinking that certain skeins looked like different shades when knitted. The fears faded when I washed and blocked parts of the sweater as I went along. (Could have done without that anxiety.) I also should have bought more yarn because the sweater cables chewed up alot more yarn than I anticipated. Nevertheless my brother has received so many compliments on the finished sweater, and he says it has become his "go to" sweater.

Great colour, nice feel but twists

The pros are almost not enough to make up for the yarn twisting -- I need to untwist at the beginning of every row. Very annoying. Wouldn't buy again.

    Comments about "" Verde Collection Solstice:

    I was looking for a replacement for an orange yarn that I have been using for years but was discontinued, and this fit the bill. Lovely, dense color, soft and not scratchy, smooth texture, great stitch definition, washable. My only problem is that this is also discontinued. I feel lucky to have found it before it was gone.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Fast delivery, no problems. Perfect transaction, really. Thank you!

    I used this for a small afghan (lap-ghan.)
    It feels great and looks beautiful.
    A few of the skeins were tangled and, either had to have the knots cut out, or lots of time spent untangling them.

      This is a beautiful yarn! I am making the "Ennis Cowl" from CEY The stitch definition is wonderful. It stretches a little with use, but with a cowl that's a plus. I bought a coral and the Kelp. Will make two cowls. One for me and one for a gift. Maybe I'll keep both! You know how it is

          I knit Cecily Glowik MacDonald's Solstice Skirt pattern, and the skirt looks great and fits well. I absolutely loved working with this yarn; so much so that I bought more of it in a different color to knit something else. The yarn is soft like cotton, but it keeps its shape well because of the 30% wool.

            blend of cotton and wool is nice - good drape and holds its shape well. Makes a fairly heavy sweater but cotton breaths well. I have purchased several different colors that are all really nice. Good stitch definition.

              Great for sweaters in the new CEY book. Soft and easy to work with. Love the colors; makes it hard to choose. Only con would be that I hand wound the skeins and they have a tendency to tangle. Made two sweaters with two different colors and they both came out terrific.
