This yarn is a very robust single-ply. It knits up at a variety of gauges and the color progressions are really beautiful. I used two balls to make a slightly larger version of Martina Behm's 22 Little Clouds and despite LOTS of wear and tugging and interaction with winter zippers and velcro, it still looks fresh off the needles.

I plan to make a shawl state with this, and watch the colors change as it knits up. Very.long dye run,.

I adore this yarn. Big, long color sequences in an ombre not repeating stripes progression. I used 2 skeins of this yarn last year to knit 22 Little Clouds by Martina Behm. The resulting wonderful little scarf has worn beautifully, soft and yet sturdy, even when meeting the velcro parts of my dogwalking coat!

This yarn is addictive. The ombre effect works every time with a scarf pattern or the Wingspan. I get mesmerized by the color changes and have to remind myself to look at the pattern once in a while. Beautiful yarn. I'm glad you carry such a wide array of colors.

Oh my. How many ways can I say yummy? I bought this yarn in Melon for Zuzu's Petals. The colors are even more vibrant than they appear on the monitor--gorgeous! The yarn is nice to work with. As with other single ply yarns, you will occasionally run into a slight thick or thin spot--very few, but they are there. No knots at all. The piece softened up beautifully upon soaking/blocking. This yarn is a winner, I am already trying to decide which colorway to try next!
