This is a yarn I'd have to call scrumptious! It is soft and drapes beautifully. I've made two exquisite shawls out of this yarn and have another planned. I love the feeling of this yarn in my hands as I knit. It doesn't split or worm, it's just a lovely experience
All the Artyarns I've tried have felt wonderful to knit with. Even though they cost more than many, they are certainly worth the expense. The finished scarves and shawls I've made are exquisite and draw lots of compliments. Give this yarn a try!
I hadn't heard of this yarn, but it was suggested for a Romi pattern, Coyote Trail, so I ordered it. It has a fabulous feel for a sock yarn. You can feel the cashmere in it. It knits easily and the colors are so intense it almost glows. I've already ordered more and hope to see JBW carry more yarns from this company!
I bought this yarn in the Manor colorway to knit the Carson scarf by Romi and I mixed it with Madelinetosh sock William Morris. The browner yarn had a bit of blue in the background and the Manor brought that color out. The yarn is soft and the stitch definition is wonderful.
I usually don't like yarn with acrylic but in this yarn it just glows and sets off the color. My colorway was fairly dark and the pop of bright made it special. The yarn is loosely plied but was easy to knit.
This yarn is thicker than it looks and not as soft as I would've expected from the description. I am making a sweater so the softness is not a real issue to me. However, I knit continental and my fingers get sore after a couple hours of knitting. I have found two knots in each skein which is why I only gave it three stars. The variation in color makes the yarn interesting to me but it varies more than in the pictures.
I bought this yarn after seeing it in the new Knit Red book for the Lace Infinity Scarf. I have finished the scarf and I am covered with red fuzz. The yarn is pretty, but I will have to be very careful with what I wear it with. The yarn is also a bit splitty if you knit continental.
The new sock yarn from Lorna's Laces is just as yummy to knit as the Shepherd sock. It slides along on the needles, doesn't split and takes color well. "He who must not be named" makes a lovely pair of socks even if you aren't a Harry Potter fan. I chose it for the color!
