Overall Classic Shades Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 based on 41 reviews)

Beautiful Outcome 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I knit a child's ski hat and a toddler jacket with this yarn. They are both adorable. The color makes them. Knit with double yarn to make them heavier for a rustic look. A little bit of splitting is the only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating. The splitting was not terrible and it does not show in the end result. I don't know how it will hold up yet in terms of any fuzziness as a consequence of the fiber content. Many people were very struck by the color.

I have not used it yet, but I have at least three projects that I am thinking of using it for. We will see which one wins out!

Love it! 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I love how this yarn works up. It is very soft, and the striping pattern is gorgeous. It does tend to split on occasion, but I can deal with that.

True to its photo! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Bought 'saphire' from this line just because I loved the colors. Looks were not deceiving! This is lucious, gorgeous yarn and the feel of it will give your fingers a cuddle. Am making myself finish my current project, though, before starting something new, so I can't speak to how it works up.
