Loved the sale price on this yarn. I like longer scarves, so used 3 skeins, casting on 6 stitches. I have the coral reef color which is a pretty bright/ loud color combination. Nice weight and texture.
I think when I bought this yarn, there weren't any reviews warning that you'd need 2 skeins. Luckily, I got my hands on a second while it was still available.
I'm knitting the seashore now and can't wait to wear it. It will be perfect to dress up jeans or a casual Friday look.
I modified my usual ruffle scarf pattern to suit this yarn by knitting only 7 stitches per row (usually I do 9), so that the colors are well distributed down the length of the scard.
I have made many scarves with this yarn and it knits up beautifully. Most of my scarfs have been gifts which the recipients all loved. In fact, the last one was made in the color shown. Many of the colors are back ordered, as the yarn is very popular. Keep up the good work Jimmy Beans Wool!
The yarn was great quality, however you need to remember to purchase 2 skeins for a typical scarf due to the 17 yard length. I was not thrilled with the color- the beige/sand color was more of a peach beige than a grey beige
This is great yarn - very similar to the Katia Triana and Rozetti Marina. My only problem was that I overlooked the yardage before ordering, it is half of Triana and Marina (16 yds vs 33 yds). So if you are planning on making one scarf from one ball, decrease your stitch counts to accommodate this. Still gave it 5 stars because that was my fault for not looking in my excitement of ordering!
