I have mixed feeling about this yarn. Loved the feel and how it knits up to an extremely soft fabric. But would recommend handwashing instead of machine wash as indicated, 'coz the sweater that I knitted for my baby keeps shedding tons of lose fibers like a cat shedding its fur! If you have the patience to remove the loose fibers after every wash with a fabic shaver, its a pretty good yarn as my baby's sweater still looks like new after multiply machine washes! Would not recommend knitting for a very young infant though
Love it! Love it! Classic simple designs that will last for years! Plus I like the fact it has many 4ply weight designs apart from DK and worsted which many other books/magazine lacks. Highly recommend to knitters who enjoy fine knitting.
Not as smooth as the Crystal Palace bamboo needles. Personally I find that it has too much friction on yarns like DB cashmerino or RYC cashsoft/cotton, but it works great on slippery mercerized cotton yarn like the Jaeger Aqua. A good set of needles for beginner knitters.
A rather stiff yarn, almost "rope"-like in texture. This is my first time knitting with mercerized cotton, quite uncomfortable with the texture and glossy sheen initially, but after knitting up a gauge swatch, I'm quite please with the effect; has nice stitch definition. Working on larger needles produces a softer fabric. A rather "slippery" yarn, best worked on Clover bamboo needles!
