I was initially interested in this yarn to make something for my elder daughter, who is allergic to wool. The color changes in this yarn resemble those of more expensive yarns which include wool so I thought it could work well.
The yarn is listed as worsted weight 4. It actually changes repeatedly from anywhere from a 2 to a 4 depending on how much acrylic yarn is on the carrying thread. The carrying thread is made of white, crimped looking cotton and the acrylic is wrapped around it. The acrylic is the part of the yarn that changes in color throughout. The yarn is made of 58% cotton, 39% acrylic, and 3% other. I have no idea what the third fiber is made of.
As with all new yarns I try, I make a scarf using half-double crochet to get a feel for how the yarn will work. For the scarf I made with this yarn, I chained 200 with 2 more chains for turning. I half double crochet into each chain with 2 more chains for turning and repeat until I ran out of yarn. I used a J/10 hook (6mm) as recommended on the skein. It made a scarf that is approximately 86 x 11 inches.
The feel of the yarn in hand as I was crocheting was not unpleasant. I could tell that there was cotton due to slight lack of give but the acrylic softened that feeling down considerably. While there was a slight roughness, I would not consider it scratchy. I've now used two skeins without coming across a knot in the fiber.
The fabric is very loose and the scarf is thin but that is exactly what I was hoping for. I made it long enough for my tall daughter (6'2”) daughter to wrap around the neck or to tie in the front. It scrunches down nicely around the neck.
I was so pleased with the results, I made another scarf with a different colorway. I now plan to make at least one of each colorway (two if both daughters want similar scarves.) If I was going to crochet a shawl, I would personally want two skeins so it would be a good size shawl instead of a tiny one.
I'll include pictures of the scarves I have made and will update with other colorways in the future.
So far I have used "peaceful earth", "restful rainbow", and "mindful mauve". They are all beautiful. I just love how the rainbow yarn isn't that bright "kid" rainbow, but rather just as it is called a "restful" rainbow. Peaceful earth is a beautiful combination of neutral, earthy colors. While mindful mauve, my favorite one, by far. Beautiful shades of purples and greys.
In addition to having beautiful colors, this yarn really makes a project stand out. Normally I am not a fan of textured yarns, but this one is different. Perfect mix of cotton and acrylic. This yarn can be difficult to get started with and the texture can make it difficult to see in the stitches, so I wouldn't recommend for a beginner crochet or knitter. Also, I have only used this for crochet, so not sure how it knits up. Yarn can stick a bit when frogging, but no where near as much as some other yarns I have used.
I would recommend steam blocking this yarn. I know most people say you can't block acrylic, but actually steam blocks it wonderfully. Really opens up the stitches and give a great drape. As far as price goes, price on here is very comparable to at any store. Definitely recommend this yarn!!
