Lorna's Laces Sportmate Yarn - Christmas at Downton Reviews

Lorna's Laces Sportmate Yarn - Christmas at Downton
Christmas at Downton shown $25.00
Sportmate, the sport-weight sister to Lorna's Solemate, is a glorious blend of scrumptiously soft superwash merino and silky smooth Outlast viscose, a smart-fiber that interacts with your body's microclimate and regulates temperature. This high-tech fiber is used by the likes of NASA and Ferrari!

Use this gorgeous yarn for summery shawls to ward off that evening chill, or for lightweight cardigans you can wear at the office to avoid the bite of an over-active air conditioner. Sportmate is perfect for any knit or crochet project and comes in many of your favorite Lorna's Laces colorways!

The color Go, Sandy, Go was created in honor of a very special JBW family/staff member, Sandy! In the fall of 2014, Sandy underwent chemo to address her recurrent cancer, and Lorna's was generous enough to dye up the gorgeous shade of peachy pink, the color endometrial cancer support, to help us raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Both Jimmy Beans Wool and Lorna's Laces are donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this color in any Lorna's Laces yarn to Cast of Chemo!, a fiber-arts based charity that helps to "fund research that will end the need for chemotherapy in breast cancer treatment and, ultimately, cure potentially all cancers."

Could be great, but.... 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
Although I like the yarn, what upsets me is the knots. This is my 3rd time using this yarn, in 3 different colors. Each time I had pesky knots, from one and up to 3 knots in every skein used! WHY is this? It is pricey yarn. Never had this with the other Lorna's Laces Yarns. My last order was 4 skeins of Child Play. I am using my second skein of this order, and, had 1 knot in EACH skein thus far. I am so disappointed, because I like the feel of the yarn, stitch definition and wear of the garments made with it. Did send a message directly to Lorna's Laces, but thus far NEVER had a reply from them. Not good customer service. Perhaps some one from JBW's Customer Service could take this up with Lorna's Laces? I am SURE that I am not the only one with this experience. ICE in NJ
