After making a full blanket with it, I can say more about working with it - thickness varies in places. There is also a bit of fuzzy/halo effect as you handle the item sometimes. That doesn't trouble me, I'm a loose crocheter and don't mind a "handmade" variability to the yarn thickness or appearance. I split the yarn a few times but I didn't perceive it to be a significant issue. This yarn doesn't strike me as generally fussy to work with, but the few times when it was mildly fussy, I just didn't care because I love it so much. If you're very particular about everything being exact on your projects - same thickness, tight tension and extremely uniform look, you probably wouldn't dig the multi-color explosion here anyway. But it's right up my alley and I'll be looking for more opportunities to work with this.
This yarn is GORGEOUS. It's super soft, very thick, and the colors (Boardwalk) are absolutely stunning. It's wonderful to work with and I want more!!! The only thing I don't 100% love about this yarn is the price.I would make huge blankets out of this stuff all over the place if I wouldn't need to mortgage something to do it. That's why it's 4 stars instead of 5. At the price I paid for it, it can only be used for accents or special projects, not all the stuff I'd love to use it for. But for a hat or scarf or something? Great choice.
This yarn is seriously gorgeous. It's extremly soft and the colors are beautiful. This is easily the most lovely yarn to work with in my experience because your needle will just glide through it. It has a satin feel to it just as described.
The changes in color within the yarn are subtle and do not produce stark stripes as seen with other yarns- at least with a granny square or a circle. Image attached. Please ignore the 'jumps' on the left, that is me accidentally and quite stupidity using dc to make a circle with multicolored yarn. But you can see how beautiful it looks.
Like another user mentioned, I too found that the yarn does stick to itself and when ripping out stitches you have to tug and it can be hard not to cause the yarn to fuzz up. See image.
For this reason it lost a star.
I can confirm that it is indeed a worsted weight yarn (4). Edit: this actually feels more like Aran weight yarn. It is also true as some users have indicated, that the thickness varies but for me it doesn't seem to spoil the end result.
It also has a slight fuzz to it although stitch patterns are very clear regardless.The fuzz does not get in the way at all.
However you have to think carefully about what you plan to make with it- particularly with this colorway. It's very dramatic and has a visible sheen to it. It is not matte as it appears to be in pictures or even when you look at the skein in real life. Once it is worked up the shine really shows.
The colors are very, very vivid. I cannot stress this enough. They are jewel tones rather than thoes found in nature and are very intense. It's absolutely stunning but personally I don't see myself wearing anything made with it, not even a scarf. Perhaps it would work for an afgan or even a fun sweater for a toddler. Edit: I am making a yarn bag with it and am waiting for more yarn to finish it. I have included an image of it so far. It has white yarn in it, hence the white holes
This yarn is lovely so I will probably try a more suble color way for a scarf or hat.
In a nutshell I recommend this yarn as a true treat! Just don't keep changing your mind about the project ( which I do a lot) because ripping out will ruin the yarn.
