I was a bit unsure when I first got this yarn. I ordered a denim, a peacock and a teal. The peacock and teal seemed too saturated with color. But I tried each with the Alpaca Lace I was pairing them with and the colors blend very well. They knit smoothly and tink well if necessary. If you want very bright colors, this is your choice, it is easier to handle than the rowan. Or if you are pairing this yarn with another sturdier yarn, it makes a great pairing. And no matter what, so soft!
