Review update

Yarn has lovely st definition. Used a size 4 for a cabled hat (Golden Autumn by Lucy Sweetland, size S); was enjoying the knitting so much that I kept going when I should have reduced the pattern by one repeat to fit me better. Will just wear it extra-slouchy. Bought a second skein to make hat to add a complementing cowl. It is exceedingly warm: tested on a 7 degree day in MN with unusually high winds. Cozy.
Would purchase again. Shipping was lightening fast!

Yummy yarn

This yarn is lucious—smooshy and soft. But I can’t yet tell you about how it knits up or st definition because it’s in my cue for later in the year. Be aware, however, that the color I ordered (flamingo) is not as intense as the picture indicates. I was hoping for coral, but the actual color is a pale pink. I’ll keep it because I like the mission of the company, and the yarn is nice, and although it won’t match my ski jacket, for which it was intended, it will at least coordinate with it.
