Feeling ambivalent...

By nursebetty

from Boise, ID

Pros

  • Great Color Saturation

Cons

  • Fuzzy
  • Not Soft For Next To Skin
  • Splitty

Best Uses

    I am feeling ambivalent about this yarn: I like the color and the idea that this is a more traditional yarn,not a lifeless superwash. I am knitting a sweater with it. It is too rough for next to skin wear, to my taste. I think it will be OK over a turtleneck, or a shirt. I would not wear a hat or a scarf made with it. It does have some black guard hairs, not too many.I also find it to be quite splitty, which makes it less convenient for cabling without a cable needle - I have to be very careful. There is some fuzz/halo to it, too, due to addition of Mohair. Some may view it as boon, some as a deterrent, as it makes for lesser stitch definition. Pretty sure I will not buy it again.

    Making Meagan Goodacres Simple Raglan Pullover from Idiot's Guide to Knitting. Perfect. Traditional yarns don't get any better than this.

    Beautiful New Yarn

    By 50-Year Knitter

    from San Antonio, TX

    Pros

    • Easily Joined
    • Good stitch definition
    • Gorgeous colors
    • Soft

    Cons

      Best Uses

        I purchased this from my LYS, not WEBS, to knit Agrotera Pullover in the Fall 2015 Interweave Knits. The combination of two different wools and mohair IS, indeed, a lustrous result (per the yarn band). The weight may be slightly more light worsted than worsted, but not to worry. The yarn is easily and invisibly joined using the "spit-split" method. No knots were found in the first ball of five.
