What Are the Yarns Benefits

First of all, the colours are lovely. There are 10 colourways to choose from and they are all equally lovely. Because the colour pallets are quite subdued and gentle, you get a lovely subtle pattern in your work. Its great if you want to give a bit more visual texture to a fairly repetitive stitch pattern. 

It is lovely and light to work with. I imagine it would make a lovely light summer top. Or a delicate wrap or shawl. 

It glides over the hook smoothly and has a wonderful sleek sheen to it and the stitch definition is just beautiful.

What Are Its Drawbacks

I cant really see any drawbacks. It is quite thin so I personally found it hard to grip. It aggravated my carpal tunnel syndrome. But this is more a fault on my part than a drawback to the yarn. 

My Rating

Versatility (does it have multiple uses?) – 8/10

Wearability (how comfortable is it to wear) – 7/10

Workability (how nice is it to work with?) – 8/10

Final Score – 23/30
