I love to knit with this sock yarn. Service was good. It arrived in a timely manner. The only disappointment was that the colors on line were not truly representative of the real colors. They were more muted on line than they really are. It's not a color I would have chosen, had I seen its true colors; however, the yarn is such a dream to knit with that it makes up for the color. I'm definitely coming back for more.
My Creme Brulee yarn is very soft, and it's pretty, it's just not the colors shown on the web site. All the colors are darker. The red is a deep scarlet, the brown portion ranges from coffee bean to a rich wood brown, and the custard yellow stripe is more of a latte beige. It's very nice, and I'll like the socks, probably as much or more than the colors pictured. The dark brown is fine, the red is fine, I'm just a little disappointed to not have the custard/toffee yellow against the red.
The yarn I ordered arrived promptly and I started knitting within days. Love the quality. It doesn't split. The colors are vivid. It slides smoothly on the needles and I ordered several self striping color ways and can't wait to move on to the next!
