 Sailor's Delight 1 of 33

I love the texture of this yarn. I found it very easy to knit with & didn't have a problem with split stitches that many people were worried about. I loved the colors showing on the. Outside of the skein which were a vibrant blue & pink mixed with orange, however with my finished hat, 90 % of the skein seems to be a cross between orange! dark grey and blah looking colors. There was in the end very little of the nice colors ghost. I could see from the outside. For this I am disappointed in the yarn.

I used this yarn for a collar pattern that uses Noro Silk Gardens. This is a much softer substitute. The colors self-stripe Lake blends beautifully from blues to purples, Sunset blends bright oranges and violet. Super soft and machine washable with a really reasonable price, who could ask for more. It is a single ply yarn which game me to splitting problems. This yarn now comes in a super bulky weight that looks like it shades just as beautifully in bright as well as more subtle colors. Can't wait to try it.

I love the softness of this wool, but the downside is that its single ply and is easy to split with your needle when knitting.

It is just about impossible to tink...undo stitches if you make a mistake. Also although I love the coloring and that is why I purchased it, I have a feeling it is going to pill horribly.

Very soft, very machine washable yarn with long color repeats and interesting color combinations. I used it for Noro Striped Scarf free pattern on Ravelry as well as other projects. Great for mitered or intrelac. Great for gifts because it is so washable.
