I bought this yarn to make a afghan. The Merino wool and Alpaca will make it a warm gift. I'm using # 15 needles so it knits ups quickly. The strands don't separate and the stitches are well defined.

My daughter-in-law selected this yarn for me to make an afghan for her living room, as the colors were perfect. I'm knitting a loose open-worked pattern and am finding two troublesome aspects of the yarn: (1) the afghan is not as soft as I expected; and (2) the yarn sheds all over my lap as I knit. I'll show the partially finished afghan to my daughter-in-law but I may have to abandon the project, because I doubt that she'll want it shedding all over her living room sofa. I'm upset because I spent over $200 buying non-returnable yarn on a close-out.

Beautiful color, but hard to work with

Comments about 7.22 Grandiosa Hand Dyed:

Very nicely dyed in both colors I got. Difficult to crochet with even though I'm using a very large hook. Frays a bit but warm.

    Comments about 7.22 Grandiosa Hand Dyed:

    Colors pictured are dusty and desaturated, when in reality are vibrant and bright. Texture and thickness is good but ultimately I'm disappointed with the color.
