I took a chance and purchased 5 skeins of this yarn and now I'm wishing that I hadn't. The colours are fun, (even though there are blotches in the dark blue that had no dye and was an unpleasant dirty white) - I had to cut out a large section because it looked terrible and one sock wouldn't come close to matching the other) but they don't look nearly as clean in reality as they're shown in the photo. The size of the strand is extremely inconsistant and will go from thick, completely unspun lengths to extremely fine and wirey over-spun in a matter of inches. Honestly, I'm a novice spinner and I feel like my product is more consistenty spun than this. At a price of $22/skein I expected a LOT more and am very disappointed.
I like to use Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn for knitting scarves. The colours are incredible! For a softer result, I use 5 mm needles rather than 4 mm. It washes beautifully in cold water (hand wash only). I can't wait to get my next order of Noro S.G. Sock yarn!
