While I am not a fan of multi-colored yarn, my mother adores them. She was determined to copy a pattern that I knitted but had strict requirements for the yarn.
1. Machine washable she has had many unfortunate unintentional felting incidents
2. Forgiving of mistakes, not splitting she once had to frog a project and the yarn was not usable afterwards
3. Non-fading color
So far, it has been very forgiving of mistakes and the swatch went through the wash perfectly. Only time will tell about steadfast color.
Just started Jared Flood's Rock Island shawl. It is knitting very smoothly but since it is two ply I have had a little trouble with splitting.
While knitting the yarn tangled and I got an impossible knot. Ended up having to cut it. So it can be finicky.
Might get a better rating after blocking.
Overall a yarn I recommend and look forward to knitting with again.
All in all I rather enjoyed working with this yarn. It is a nice 100% wool so I can forgive it for being a little rough before its first wash. The yarn itself has a very loose spin and can split when not paying attention. This also causes a halo effect after knitting. I also imagine that it would make for a great felting wool.
