I've used several colors of this yarn and will review the yarn as if it were first quality. Given the variety of different fibers blended, I have found that some of the change-overs are not that well done-- sequins or beads can come lose, some flowers are not that well sewn on. If you can overlook these flaws and fix them yourself, your finished project will be very unique. That is why I have kept buying this yarn. And yes, it is pricy.
I can't buy enough of this yarn. I absolutely love it. The colors are wonderful and intense, the drape, lovely and a joy to knit with. I've made so many scarves and sweaters with this yarn and I finally made one for me. I love it. It's soft, warm and so nice to wear! You won't be disappointed with this yarn.
