Knitting Fever Painted Desert

Painted Desert by Knitting Fever is a soft, self-striping fingering weight yarn that's perfect for shawls, wraps and lace projects. Painted Desert is two plies, each a different luminous jewel tone with long color changes. With a supple hand and plenty of stretch, Painted Desert will be a joy to work with, and there's enough yarn in one 100g ball to make a shawl. Made in China.

    Beautiful colors and fun to knit. But had 2 yarn breaks in one 100 gram ball and inconsistent yarn thickness. It's a center pull ball but using it from that end made it twirl and spin on itself so frogged it and used other end. It would be great if this were in a skein so I could wind it myself-- inconvenient to do from a ball.

    Not sure if I would buy this again.

            The well-blended color transition, plus the long length of each change, is making quite an elegant looking Spectra Scarf by Stephen West. This yarn is quite soft. Can't wait to finish my scarf. It will be my donation to a Pancreatic Cancer
            fund raiser.
            Bought enough yarn for a hat too!

              Webs is a wonderful place to buy yarn from. I trust them and they always follow through. Their customer service personnel are friendly and helpful. The shipping is in a timely manner and the yarn is protected in a sturdy box. I would not hesitate to buy yarn again from them.

                      When I received this yarn I couldn't get over how beautiful the colors are. The transitions are absolutely incredible. It took me a couple of days to get to the point to knit with it because of it's beauty!
