Beautiful yarn for garments
This yarn has such a soft touch, it makes the perfect summer pieces. Easily one of my favorite yarns yet. I would say however that this is closer to a fine(2) for weight, rather than light(3).
Smooth and not too splitty
This is a smooth yarn that is working up into a nice drapey fabric (in DC with a 3.5mm hook). It is a little splitty but I’m finding it very manageable. As for the colour, the product picture makes it seem like this is a dark grey yarn with accents of light grey and bright pink - in reality the majority colour is light grey, with dark grey and bright pink. The colour sequence is ‘light grey, dark grey, pink, dark grey, light grey…’. The colour runs are all quite short - in my case I get about 5 DC light grey, 2 dark grey, 2 pink, 2 dark grey etc., so the effect is bright pink spots on a multitonal grey ground. The greys are on the cool side, the pink is gorgeous - clear and bright.
