soft and smooth - easy on the hands

Comments about true Softyak DK:

used for a sweater for the wife - Tinsley in rowan's softyak dk collection. I'm through the body, and onto one of the sleeves, but haven't seamed yet, and so can't speak to how it wears. It is soft and very smooth to the touch. The swatch hand washed fine with minimal change, and because of the chainette construction I found it easy on the hands. It is a fairly dense chain, however, so this is not a breezy, cool, summer yarn, more transitional. I've only found two knots in six skeins, and, frankly, left them, because they didn't seem like they were going anywhere. Frogs and reknits without problems.

Loved the colors which will look quite nice along with the age of the person I am knitting the scarf.
Will consider purchasing this yarn again for other projects..Easy hand, colors close to what was
shown in the computer....I purchase most of my yarn on WEBS.

Comments about true Softyak DK:

Love the feel of this yarn. Very soft and wonderful construction, no splitting. Crocheted a couple of swatches. Loved how they turned out. Will be making a diamond stitch scarf, which is sure to make the trellis pattern pop.

          Soft and beautiful

          Comments about true Softyak DK:

          Extremely soft, no shedding, great stitch definition. The colors are gorgeous. It's a total pleasure to knit with. I bought a bunch on sale, but it's (for me) prohibitively expensive otherwise. I would use this stuff exclusively if I could.

                  Comments about true Softyak DK:

                  Love how soft this yarn is! It's not itchy at all. Knitted a hat and it feels nice while wearing it. My one complaint is that the balls of this yarn I ordered did not have a melange effect in the color like the description says. I bought 3 balls of the "plain" color (color 232) all of the same dye lot and they didn't have that slightly heathered look that the picture shows, which like I said, the description says the different fibers give a "melange" effect to the color. The yarn also has a slight sheen to it, which I wasn't exactly expecting nor wanting. But overall, it is very soft yarn and I would recommend it.
