Guessing from the discounts I am beginning to see this yarn didn't get a widespread following. It is full of character and has a dry feel yet not really scratchy or very itchy. Still it was love at first sight for me. I have made a vest by doubling it up on 13's. This way the colors don't stripe so predictably. Tripled it is even crazier and makes a nice hat. It is strong enough to handle the tugging needed at times, but beware taking an item apart is an exercise in patience! Just beautiful stuff for the right style.
The vibrant colors drew me in, and for that, I was richly rewarded. There are no words other than wow. That said, this was not my yarn, and I ended up selling it. The rough boucle like texture is not ideal for my style of crocheting. Working with it hurt, and frogging it was nearly impossible. I've seen it finished and obviously, it works for many others.
Made an oversized sweater on 11 needles andlove the warmth and texture of this yarn. Have not washed..no blocking required for this item. Just watch as the yarn seems to slide along the nylon base and can clump but easily manageable.
I bought this yarn on a whim, because the bright colors called me!
I made it into a simple long scarf with fringe. It's STUNNING. The pic doesn't do it justice. Along with the blues, oranges, and lime is red, purple and pink. It's a rainbow of gorgeous, deep colors.
The boucle does make it a tiny bit difficult to work with, but I still was able to knit the skein into a scarf in one evening.
