I do like this yarn but the number of knots is really annoying & something I've noticed about other Paton yarns. I love the colour & am trying it for a summer top. I expect it will get softer with use like other projects I've done with pure hemp yarn.
This is a sturdy yarn great for totes. It is not overly soft but has great colors and would be useful for any project where you need strength.
I used this yarn to make a backpack and some small amigirumi. I feel like it's durable and won't lose it's shape over time. It's perfect for making amigirumi that will be roughed around a bit. The colours are really vivid too. My only complaint about this yarn is that it frequently has tied ends throughout the skein, usually one or two.
