I have not used the yarn yet, but ordering and delivery was very fast and efficient.
Everything I expected, loved the yarn and the service. Many thanks!
I love the base used for your sock yarn, and this yarn is super soft. I want to knit all the colors! I was very excited to get this in the mailbox. I wound it up that night. I did expect the yarn to have more green though.
The Chameleon colors varied a bit from the image, but I actually like what I got better. The yellow stripe as pictured is perhaps an orangey-lemon to pale lemon or white; mine is cinnamon to honey, lovely rich golden brown tints. In between the dark chocolate & mocha, the pictured color is salmon, what I have is white. The blue between the gold and chocolate is a richer peacock teal than pictured. It's really quite lovely and a joy to knit, looking forward to the next color to come to the needles.
The yarn itself is soft and smooth, it almost feels like it has silk in it. Nice loft, a very pleasant "squish" to the hank, and knits up to a nice light sock that won't feel bulky in the shoe. It would be great for gift socks, but I'm keepin' it!
