This yarn is an absolute dream! I bought a bunch of colours, knowing that I'd have a new grandchild soon. The first item I made was a newborn cardigan and it crocheted beautifully. It's so easy to work with and is INCREDIBLY soft. The strands of cotton don't unwind from the strand of silk. It has a gorgeous sheen in the finished product and I'm so glad i bought as much as I did. My only complaint is that there aren't nearly enough colours. I want ALL the colours of the colour wheel!! I love it that much.
This yarn is so fun to work with. I crocheted a dress using the Eucalyptus colorway (which is darker, bluer, and richer that it looks online), and it was so easy to work with. The construction of the yarn means it doesn't split very easily (and also frogs painlessly). It has a nice texture from the ply but still glides smoothly. I do wish that this would come in a lighter weight, though, since the fabric this works up into is actually quite thick, while I'd expect a cotton and silk garment to be lighter.
Well well well, how do you describe pleasure, softness and luxurious...buy that yarn. I decided to make my third lanta throw with my first order I just received today. When I touched it, I had to use it right away. It looks like an old fashion cotton while being soft and I am sure very comfortable. Pictures to follow as I am putting everything else away to do that one. Love love love!
I love working with this yarn and it comes in beautiful colors. It’s very soft to work with and I plan to use it to make a few spring/summer garments because it drapes well. The fiber content makes a breathable, lightweight fabric. I’ve already made a sleeveless top and am working on a longer lightweight cardigan.
This yarn is EVERYTHING I dream of in a yarn. How do you describe something that is confronting and soft and cool to the touch but also cozy and delicate? This yarn hits all the check boxes, hobbii really did a great job with this one! If you can get your hands on this yarn you are bound to be impressed.
