      I made an absolutely stunning and unique arm knit infinity scarf with two hanks of this. I have gotten so many compliments! This yarn is super plush and 2 strands together makes a generous looking arm knit scarf. Love, love, love this yarn. Great colorways too! I may order more to make another scarf next winter.

      My daughter-in-law selected this yarn for me to make an afghan for her living room, as the colors were perfect. I'm knitting a loose open-worked pattern and am finding two troublesome aspects of the yarn: (1) the afghan is not as soft as I expected; and (2) the yarn sheds all over my lap as I knit. I'll show the partially finished afghan to my daughter-in-law but I may have to abandon the project, because I doubt that she'll want it shedding all over her living room sofa. I'm upset because I spent over $200 buying non-returnable yarn on a close-out.

                This is a very lovely soft, super bulky yarn that knits up very quickly. Love the pattern that the various shades create.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Grandiosa Hand Dyed:

                This yarn, while very nice, seems too dense to make a comfortable cowl, which is what I bought it for. Might end up making a great scarf, though.

                    I used this on a cowl for a friend and it was a fast work up - I'm not an expert knitter, and because this yarn is so thick, it's easy to see what's going on.

                        If there is a perfect yarn: This is it! My fourth shipment arrived today. This time, I'll make a shawl for myself....using 7 skeins...casting on 22 stitches, increasing to 24 until the end when I use this formula in reverse...I'll use #17 or #19 needles...I prefer circular. Thanks for selling this GREAT product!

                        Some I have knitted will go to Berlin and The Ukraine...where I have friends.

                                      I bought this yarn to make a afghan. The Merino wool and Alpaca will make it a warm gift. I'm using # 15 needles so it knits ups quickly. The strands don't separate and the stitches are well defined.
