It is beautiful yarn, while mercerized yarn is usually heavy, this fine is perfect weight for all garments. stitches really stand out. Wish it came in as many colors as their regular pima yarn. I will buying more of this yarn.
I needed a sweater for a party and this yarn has enough shimmer in it to fill the bill. I made two sweaters, the first had long sleeves, and I knitted to the guage recommended, however I felt the sweater was much too heavy and might have a tendency to grow, so I made
another with short sleeves. It is beautiful and perfect for what I wanted it for. However I would not buy this yarn again, it has a heavy metal feel to it..
Had a terrible time getting the guage for this yarn. I had a Plymouth pattern 5hat called for encore at 5 sts per inch. The sample was like a board....At 4 per inch it was ok but the wool in it is not soft...Next time I will make sure
the wool is Merino. Luck it is a vest for golf....and not something for a baby.
