Waste of time

By ColieK

from Minnesota

Pros

  • Beautiful Sheen And Color

Cons

  • Tangled

Best Uses

    Don't let the beautiful colors draw you in. I ordered three skeins and all of them were so tangled they were completely unusable. Such a pity and too expensive to take that chance again.

    Beautiful silk-like yarn

    By Crocheted Jewels

    from Simsbury, CT

    Pros

    • Sheen Color Silky Feel

    Cons

    • Wind Slowly-lots Of Yarn

    Best Uses

    • Shawls Tops

    I have made shawls, tops and cowls with this yarn - each one has been gorgeous! The sheen, feel and magnificent tonal color waves are second to none!
    When winding, (and I have wound a lot!), take your time! 650 yards is a lot on one hank - I have never had to use scissors! If it seems tangled, just run your fingers through the yarn on the swift... it sort of "sticks together" sometimes... but it is just one looong piece... be patient, and you will be rewarded with a fantastic result!

    Difficult yarn

    By NFM

    from Michigan

    Pros

    • Sheen

    Cons

    • Tangled Mess

    Best Uses

      The best thing about this yarn is its lovely sheen. The worst thing is that it is a nightmare to wind: the skeins were a tangled mess and it took me a long time and the unfortunate use of scissors. It also should be classified a light fingering yarn, not fingering. I had problems making gauge for my project. In the end I will have to make something else with it where gauge is not important, such as a shawl. I would not buy it again.

      Be careful when winding

      By Twiggels

      from Ontario

      Pros

      • Sheen
      • Stitch Definition

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Lace Work Shawls

        Had the worst time winding from skein. It ended up such a tangled mess and I had to cut out quite a bit due to the knots and tangles.
