These yarns are beautifully dyed and the colors are deep and rich. The yarn is soft and springy and fun to work with. I haven't run into any knots but there have been a few spots where the spit joint is obvious and the yarn is loose and sloppy. My project is mostly in garter stitch so it's not a huge deal but if I were making something with a more defined stitch, I would be angry.
Overall a great yarn.
I bought this yarn to knit a shawl after watching the review video provided from the website, however, when my order came in I was surprised by how scratchy it felt. The yarn is pretty, but my neck is sensitive so there is no way I would be able to wear the shawl myself.
I was able to see and touch this yarn at my LYS, but they didn't have enough skeins, or variety of colors, on hand for my needs. They told me that this brand was being discontinued, which broke my heart. It is absolutely the best blend of fibers I've ever worked with - soft and pliable, holds crochet stitches beautifully, and has great definition and drape for a #3 weight size, using G thru J size hooks, so I wanted more. I'm familiar with many, many yarn websites, none of which sold this brand. I hadn't heard of JWB, so I did a Web search for Zitron, which thankfully! led me to Jimmy Wool Beans. I ordered quite a few skeins, in different colors again, thank you JWB for all the choices!, told my Ravelry buddies, and before I knew it, my order was sent within days! I'm thrilled with the yarn AND with JWB! They've been wonderful to work with and very, very helpful. A big YAY! for JWB for both yarn choices AND customer service!
