Overall Ayllu Overdye Aran Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (4.0 based on 2 reviews)

a great felt 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I knitted a gauge sample of Dynasty, which is black with brights. I used a size 6 needle and found it too loose. I felted the sample by hand, It was hopelessly furry and blurry. I pulled the fuzz up and trimmed it off.I dried it in a slow oven, about 250 degrees and it cut about 1/16 off the surface, hoping to get to clearer waters. Moderate success. But it wasn't dry yet. I just took it out of the oven again, and it is much improved. The colors are brighter and more prominent. It still looks black from a distance. The It is very pretty now, and if you dared try to size it, it would make a terrific Chanel-style jacket. It's not the best yarn I've ever played with, but it's been fun, and I solved the shedding problem mentioned in another review, although it was solved the hard way. Anything that soft and barely spun is going to shed. Just plan on it.

Good yarn, sheds a lot 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This yarn is very variegated and I like that but it also sheds a lot.
