I love this yarn because of the feel and the texture. It really is very soft and comfortable. My comment is aimed at the fact that there are no dye lots for this yarn. This is not an issue until you need to use more than one hank...there will be noticeable color shifts unless you knit from two skeins at once ( two rows from one, two rows from the other).
I purchased four hanks of this yarn, intending to knit a sweater. I know about the dye lot issue, and wanted to see if I could effectively disguise the color shifts...
I decided to knit squares, each one from a different skein. I assembled them as I worked. The sweater is not finished, but I can see that this method does NOT disguise the color shifts. Each square is just a little different from the next, but since the sweater itself is one unit, I think I can pull it off.
HOWEVER, if I were to purchase multiple hanks of this yarn again, I would simply knit whatever I was making with the two-rows-from-two-skeins method. I think it's the only way to get a really cohesive whole.

not really such a great yarn

planned on using this splurge on a fitted sweater which I will do but yarn is really thinner than I expected more like a fingering and the ball ban stated gauge is overly optimistic. ...Read complete review

      Super Squishy

      By Jackie

      Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Pashmina:

      I'm using this yarn to knit a shawl after hearing how much everyone loved it. It is soft, but after the first few inches, I wasn't really impressed with it. It was just... yarn. However, after really getting into the bulk of the pattern, I now see why everyone loves this yarn so much. It's soft and squishy and seems to hold up pretty well to being drug in and out of my project bags all across town.

            I'm knitting a "narvon" vest and this yarn is just a delight to work with. It's showing the lace stitches beautifully. I'm not finished but it seems like it will have a great drape to it.
            Love this yarn and its color!!

                Used this to make a simple seed stitch scarf. Beautiful stitch definition, the colour is amazing and I can't get over how soft it is!

                  Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Pashmina:

                  One of the most beautiful yarns I have ever worked with. I know "beautiful" is simply a subjective word, but really folks, except for the price, I cannot imagine a yarn being any nicer. Mild color variations give it a sense of richness. The stitch definition is as good as it gets. If this is too pricey for your wallet, save your loose change and watch for sales. Warning: pictures do not do it justice! Touch, then knit.
