Nice yarn to knit with. Made the skirt shown in their ads. I love linen, both to knit with and the way it drapes when finished. This yarn does drape nicely. And it's reasonably priced! The downsides are: Color variances within dye lots which were pretty significant making it hard to match stiping; Have worn the skirt twice and it began stretching almost immediately. Also, in the final analysis, if you can afford Louet's Euroflax linen, it's a far superior product, in my opinion. I would recommend this yarn to others with the above reservations.

The feel of the yarn is luxurious, although is has a few knots as I am knitting five skirt panels (& balls) at once on my circulars. I am noticing the flaws first but the indigo/silver/off white pattern is gorgeous. The pattern called for 9 balls, I'm afraid I won't have enough yarn to complete the project.

        Pros

        • Easy care
        • Easy to wear comfortable

        Cons

        • Yarn Splits Rather Easily

        Best Uses

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Linen Concerto:

          I am making an oversized sweater with simple lace motif with this yarn. I love the linen look and subtle shine. And I love the easy-care features: machine washable and dry able: what more could I ask.

          The yarn does have a bit of a tendency to split, however, meaning that I have to be especially careful when working SSK's. Otherwise, I find it a very pleasant yarn to work with, and wouldn't hesitate to choose it for a future project.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Linen Concerto:

          The yarn has a lovely sheen an is a delight to handle. The ball has a tendency to become unwound and tangle. I probably should have started with the center strand instead. Either way I think the ball would have dintegrated into a puddle.

                Made a short sleeved top with the regular linen concerto, LOVED IT!!!!! My nieces and friends all want my top.
                Made a sweater with the varigated yarn - not thrilled with the coloring of the yarn, but the sweater came out pretty good.

                • Knitted A Baby Blanket

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Linen Concerto:

                The yarn is perfect for a knitted or crocheted portable baby throw. Trim it with silky ribbons, and it looks gorgeous. Over the top luxury for the little one. Also, it is great for a light top for women. Again, trim it with soft ribbons, and other embellishments. It looks expensive designer style top that is only for you.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Excellent on time delivery, and they were well protected and packaged.

                This yarn is so great! You can do everthing from market bags and coasters to fancy sweaters and shawls. Just let your imagination go. Look at it out of the box..I got the Pinks and Corals. The colors are beautiful. I cannot make up my mind if I am going to make Plymouths "Drapey Short Sleeved Cardigan" "Linen Concerto Scarf" or "Malibu Breeze Loop Cowl" Choices. choices, choices
