Overall Johanne Rating: 2.3 out of 5 stars (2.3 based on 3 reviews)

Split, Split, Split 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
I'm not wild about this yarn at all. The colors are fabulous and the feel of the yarn is great but it's horrible to cast on. I use the cable cast on method and all the yarn does is split. Not fun to work with.

Beautiful to look at, but 2 out of 5 stars (2 out of 5)
This yarn is so lovely to look at, but the texture is not appealing. When I made a shawl with it, I couldn't get it to be less scratchy, even after soaking.

Just ok, definitely looks better in the photos than irl, too much halo and too plasticky for my liking.
