Love this yarn! It's 4 strands together, and they gradually transition one thread at a time with a tiny knot that's easily hidden while working. Sometimes I find the strands aren't the same length, I found it best to either pull out a yard or so and smooth it out as you go, or to reball the whole thing using the same technique as above, just all at once before you start working the yarn. Besides that tedious technical point, this yarn is soft and a joy to work with when it's all the same length. With the long smooth color transitions it compliments just about any piece you could make with it.
The colours and texture of this yarn are lovely. It's perfect for the project I purchased it for but I'm having a lot of difficulty working with it. There's a lot of splitting and even when I correct the splits some of the strands bunch up and I need to unravel my work to re-adjust the tension. I'm using it for a crochet garment and wonder if maybe this yarn is more suited to knitting? Has anyone had similar experiences? Any tips or suggestions? Thanks!
The yarn is so soft and the colours are pretty.
