Overall Lima Colour Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 based on 2 reviews)

Lovely, but know what you're buying! 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This knits up into the softest, coziest fabric. Just wonderful. I made the Garter Rib Ruffled Scarf from the Stitch Mountain book. Since I preferred to mostly knit, rather than mostly purl, I re-wrote the pattern to be inside out. It turned out came as a big surprise to find that my scarf was not going to be tonal effects of a single color, but morphed into a 2nd color and back again within a single ball of yarn. The Santiago color goes from heathered purple to a med-deep marine blue. The color change is not always apparent on the picture that shows the ball of yarn. I also had to buy twice as many skeins so that my color change at skein changes would flow nicely and unwind until I got to the equivalent dye point.'s wonderful to work with, but know in advance that there are some specifics you should clarify with the JBW staff first. And, if you have to do what I did, have a 2nd project in mind for the waste yarn.
