Had quite a time with this yarn while knitting it because the powdery indigo dye got on hands, clothes, needles, and you breathed it too. Not permanent except a bit on bamboo needles. But it was a beautiful color, difficult to find, really indigo.
It worked up well in the pattern which was specifically for this yarn, and
following instructions for pre-shrinking
worked well. The resulting cabley pullover surpassed expectations, with beautiful stitch definition.
Following up on a sweater from Cascade Lima, I liked the texture and working with it, but the sale yarn had lots of knots & as a twined single ply, not so good for splicing, so joins were tied
at end of rows, and I needed more yarn.
But the sweater was so successful, so
comfortable to wear, warm yet light
that I really want to recommend this yarn. Such a pleasure.
Got the pale yellow on sale, & except that there were so-o many knot joins,
this was fun to knit with & I'm happy with the cabley cardigan. Suggest you
get an extra ball or 2 so you don't need to worry about having enough because of those joins, since it's a one ply cotton, you can't ply it so there's more waste.
