The picture provided by Yarn Canada is a tad deceiving as the yarn itself is mostly medium blue with light/darker gradients throughout. The Caron Yarn website provides a better picture. The yarn itself is soft and smooth. There is a slight shine or sheen to the yarn itself and it has very little stretch to it. The weight is consistent throughout the skein. It is easy to knit with.
I was disappointed to find that there is more light blue than dark blue, but it still looks good . There are a few more noticeable joins than I would like, at least in two of the skeins so far, but the yard is soft and easy to work with.
