Beautiful colors and fun to knit. But had 2 yarn breaks in one 100 gram ball and inconsistent yarn thickness. It's a center pull ball but using it from that end made it twirl and spin on itself so frogged it and used other end. It would be great if this were in a skein so I could wind it myself-- inconvenient to do from a ball.

Not sure if I would buy this again.

Pretty and soft but splits easily

Comments about true Painted Desert:

Have been working a lace cowl, difficult with lots of splitting. Fine for stockinette sections though.

I am a beginner knitter and it was hard at first for me to work with fingering yarn, as the saying goes practice makes perfect!

    Comments about true Painted Desert:

    I used this product to make a shawlette and loved the way it looked so much that I bought more skeins and made more shawls/scarves. I really like the marled look and the long color changes which work especially for larger projects.

        Mystery colors!

        Comments about true Painted Desert:

        This has been fun because I am making a Riblette Shawlette and you just never know when the color change will happen and how much of it there will be. My only regret is that I didn't buy a brighter color. This one is very subtle and conservative.
