I had no trouble winding this on a ball winder. There have been a few thin spots that I spit spliced. I first thought that the yarn was too stiff and would not be manipulated so I changed patterns. It is working well in Dangling Conversation. I wouldn't try to use it in a pattern that had any difficult, over-manipulated stitches. Simple is best. The yarn softens up wonderfully but don't expect sharp definition.

I've ordered Cascade yarns a couple of times and have never had a problem. This "Souk" yarn was just awful. Had to hand wind all the balls because it broke SO easily. While winding, I came across several places where the yarn had broken and the manufacturer had simply sloppily knotted it back together. One skein was broken and knotted back together in three places.

I made a diagonal design scarf and was thrilled with the outcome, especially the color combinations and richness of the look. Was going to give this away but have decided to keep it.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Souk:

    I bought this yarn because my son wanted to use it for his weaving. It makes great scarves and the color changes within each skein are unique. I haven't tried knitting with it yet, as he has put all of it in his own stash. It gets interesting with two fiber freaks in the house. Dear WEB's, we'll keep you in business for a while yet!

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Souk:

        I'm making a sweater out of this latest batch of Souk that is made from squares. I needed an aran-weight yarn with long color changes for this particular project, and the fiber content, colors, yardage, and price are the things that helped me make my decision to get this yarn.

        I've used both Souk and Casablanca a lot, and I must admit that I have something of an addiction to rustic-looking long-color-change singles yarns. I actually enjoy working with the thick/thin nature of them, and if it breaks, a spit-splice gets you right back on target.

        Service and delivery comments:

        speedy delivery as always!

        Using the Souk pattern provided to me when I purchased the yarn I made 2 scarfs. The flow of blue colors was spectacular. I also purchased the purple for another scarf.

            I used this to weave fabric which will probably become clothing. It is soft and has wonderful color changes (I got the "rainbow" colorway)

            Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I already have.

            I really like the material for the shawl I am making for my daughter but began to get weary when the there were lots of breaks, where the yarn goes from a nice thickness to a point where it is so thin it unravels.

              I have now ordered five skeins of this fun yarn. I have completed two triangle small scarfs and they are adorable. I added a ruffle to one using some ribbon yarn in my stash. The multi colors are terrific to blend as you knit.

              The yarns speak SPRING and as I send my finished products out as gifts, They bring a smile to my face.

              I am going to knit the rest of the skeins and offer them in my little Etsy shop. Another winner for Cascade.

              Happy Spring, all! Grandma Honey
