This yarn made my eyes pop! the colors were far more brighter in person. which was not a bad thing as far as the project I purchased it for. The texture is much smoother than other ribbon yarns I have bought & the sheen is beautiful when worked up.
I love the colors, the shine, the way it works up. It is easy to knit, made up a pattern for twin granddaughters for a top since I did not see a pattern I liked. I did use garder stitch for accent and stockingnette for body of the sweater. It is beautiful and I recommend basic stitches to really show off, patterns kind of lose the beauty of this yarn imo, I had a verigated and loved it. I did not give it five stars as it does not have the "locking" properties of yarn and will slide. In other words the woven in ends will pop out when washed as well as the stitches will slide and you have to kind of re-distribute and even out the stitches here and there.
Just received Nasturtiun and it is even better than the photo. I also ordered some Killer Red Kidsilk Haze (on sale) and much to my dismay it is a perfect color to use in combination with the Party to make a Squiggle Wrap. JBW, you rock on service,wool Watcher and all else. Now to order one more skein of Killer.
This ribbon produced an interesting fabric that is light and springy. I had a heck of a time working with this as any little hangnail or burr on your nails snags the yarn. I had to take my wedding ring off to work on this stuff. Fun for a vest. Will probably go with a matte finish ribbon for the next vest.
