I would like to give this yarn a better review, but I can't.
I was looking forward to this yarn from some of the patterns. Then I saw it / felt it in a store. I was shocked by the quality for the price.
I took some to my clients, so ask their opinion- They gave it a thumbs down.
The positive- GREAT colors.
Easy to work with. Looks so luxurious when worked up. The depth of color and the sheen are amazing.
One note- Yarn tends to be splitty, if that is something you struggle with.
I Knitted a scarf on my machine with this yarn and worked like a dream. I will use it again and again.
I love this yarn. I have done a few designs with it. Great yardage, great colors. It is nice and soft, and if it doesnt feel totally soft to you, if you wet block it- it get so soft. LOVE this yarn - hookmeup on ravelry
I was drawn to this yarn with the Idira Ghandi color way
Plus: The yardage is a whopping 560 yards, and it is a superwash.
The yarn is classified as a luxury yarn, but the only fiber that would make is any more luxurious than a standard sock/fingering yarn is 25% mohair.
I put the yarn on my swift, and quickly realized- it was a knotted mess. I tried to un-knot it- but to no avail. The entire ball had to be thrown in the trash= unsalvagable.
It was then when it was pointed out to me that they actually have instructions for balling- Which leads me to believe this happens more often than not, judging from the instructions.
Hopefully others have better luck with this yarn than I did.
It should be noted that I re-ball all yarn that I use. Whether it is in ball form or hank, and I have been doing this for a better part of 8+ years, so it is not as though I don't know how to use my swift and baller.
I loved this yarn so much that I wrote a Tunisian Crochet pattern to go with it!
It has a wonderful hand, easy to work with, and so affordable. The color choices are amazing- deep and rich. You would think this was a much more expensive yarn. The white "slubs" add depth to the finished piece.
It should be noted that this is a slightly "thick/thin" yarn- but not to the extreme.
