Bought 15 additional skeins of this yarn

I made the Fiddlehead Set pattern and had so many complements and requests that I ordered 15 additional skeins to make hats and mitts for Christmas gifts.

I am a veteran knitter. I know my yarns. This is not worsted weight. Sorry. I also ordered a DK weight at the same time which was actually THICKER than this "worsted weight" yarn. When I returned with my comment I got the response that "it does knit up with a stitch gauge of 5 stitches per inch on US 5-7 needle, which is the typical gauge for a worsted weight yarn." Sure, maybe if your tension is that of a toddler....

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Southwick:

    I'm using this for a sweater (for a wool-phobic sister). It works up easily & looks great, but I'm a little concerned that is might not hold the weight of the sweater over time. We'll see!

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Southwick:

        The yarn is very soft and has good stitch definition. Yes it is splitty, but most cotton and cotton blends I have used are, so no surprise there.
        I cannot comment on durability as I am still working on the project. Strongly suggest swatching and blocking for anything where the finished size is a consideration.

            I am working with it on a lace pattern. The yarn opens up the lace beautifully, but sometimes it splits.

            I knitted 2 size 12 mos. dresses for twin girls. Love the weight of the garments. Edges finished so beautifully that I didn't need to come back and knit a separate edge.

            The bamboo content of this yarn makes it lovey and drapey; it feels so good. After making afghans for lots of other people, this is something I made for myself and I'm glad I did. I bought the kit, a very good move. It works up quickly and easily. I'm considering buying some more colors for gifting.
