      I have ordered this a few times and am very happy with the surprises! I love the quality of the yarn and the surprise colors that make me find the right pattern that may take me to something new is a great inspiration!! Thank-you for offering this!!

      Beautifull shades of blue, brilliant close shading on the first skein & blue to grey teal shades on the second skein they should look awesome in a shawl together....

    3. WHOA! COMPLETELY WONDERFUL!!  star rating

      Posted by Sandra Mierka on 12th Dec 2016

      The yarn I received was 2 matching hanks for very very soft alpaca/silk yarn. It is the nicest yarn I have ever purchased and I couldn't be more in love with it. I'm super grateful that I was able to buy such amazing yarn as surprise skeins at a price that is more manageable for me. I very strongly recommend buying Chandi's yarn this way. She has great taste and clearly she wants me to love her yarn as much as she does.

    4. Such a treat!  star rating

      Posted by Julie Gervais on 12th Nov 2016

      These yarns are a delight both to look at and work with. Soft and gentle against the skin with a lovely soft blue color like well washed denim. Opening the package to see what had been sent was fun. I am looking forward to using this yarn with the Beginner Knitted Beanie and Beginner Crocheted Hat patterns. If you want to treat yourself and don't have a particular colorway in mind choose the surprise skeins to add to your stash.

    5. Wonderful surprise  star rating

      Posted by Tish on 25th Oct 2016

      I got the greatest surprise when I opened my order! The two skeins were gorgeous and wonderful!! I love the suspense of not knowing exactly what you are going to get, and to get a surprise of this high quality and gorgeous colors, it's like Christmas!! Thanks Chandi, another inspiring blessing from you to all of us!! We are very blessed that you share your gift with us!!

    6. Perfect surprise  star rating

      I had never ordered from you before so I decided to go with the surprise skeins. I received 2 matching Dewey DK in what looks to be a tester of the Peony. I had just finished a baby sweater in another yard and immediately remade it in my surprise yarn. I will definitely be ordering from you again.

    7. Utterly Conflicted  star rating

      Posted by Mary Chung on 8th Aug 2016

      I think i received the Orange Peel Superwash Dewy DK. I'm currently battling with the dark forces over this yarn right now. On one hand, it feels gooooooood. On the other hand, i dislike orange, intensely. And would you believe it, I received orange. I'm from clear across the globe, Malaysia. And this yarn is costly, to say the least. So my inner scrooge is currently flaying my poor hide. But it feels gooood. So i'll be skipping the surprise skeins in the future and going for the skeins that actually sings to me. Which is, like, almost all of your yarns. Except for orange.

      I got two skeins of a gorgeous sky blue that I want to just at and pet forever. Except that would mean I'm not petting the June alexandrite.

    10. Surprise really was !  star rating

      Posted by Charles Burton on 14th Jul 2016

      I ordered the Surprise Skeins on a whim to see what would arrive and was really surprised that it was the high quality normally purchased. The color way is beautiful, and I love the weight of the yarn. I'm going to knit a Cowl for my daughter as a surprise, and am sure she will love it. Thank you for offering this Surprise deal !! ....

      Posted by Steph on 13th Jul 2016

      Didn't realize tester skeins where an option, yarn is super soft, got 2 of the same at least... Not colors I'd usually go for but im sure I can find something for them.

    12. Lovely surprise!  star rating

      Posted by Barbara on 11th Jul 2016

      I received 2 tester skeins in the Superwash Dewy DK. They are wonderfully soft and squishy and the most lovely denim blue and ivory colorway. Thank you for sending me matching skeins, in my absolutely favorite color family! Now I get to find the perfect project, yay! I can tell this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

    13. Disappointed  star rating

      Posted by Tatiana on 11th Jul 2016

      Just received the two mystery skeins I ordered and I'm kind of disappointed. I was really excited to see what I would get since everyone seems so happy with their orders and because I love all the yarn I've ever ordered from EFA. But the skeins I received seem like duds with some weird random red spots on them that look like stains. Like most knitters, I know the red spots are going to bother me when I'm knitting because they make the light taupe-y color I received look dirty. For the price, I should have just ordered two skeins of another color I really love.

    14. wonderfully squishy!  star rating

      Posted by Shannon Oneill on 7th Jul 2016

      Wow! Wasn't sure what to expect but I got 2 of the most wondefully squishy soft yarns. Pretty variegated blues and greys. I can't wait to find the perfect pattern for it.

      I can't wait to use this to make something wonderful! I received two matching skeins and will absolutely get surprised in the future!!

    16. Love them!!  star rating

      Posted by Leanne on 24th Jun 2016

      I recieved 2 tester colors and they are AMAZING!! They match very closely to a skein I ordered originally and will complement it great! I'm glad they are both same coloration and weight! Will definitely have to order again sometime! I don't think you could go wrong with this! I love the mystery of it!! It looks very close to the White Cornflowers 'Luster' Superwash Merino Tencel Sport! Thank you!!

      Rec'd two skeins of a 'tester' colorway in a beautiful colorway. Yarn was yak silk lace weight and is stunning. I loved this and the April Lilac so much I just placed another order.

      Excellent product and exceptional service!

      Posted by Pam on 2nd Apr 2016

      Just received my package and can't wait to choose a project for my 2 surprise skeins. The colors are gorgeous and not what I would have chosen for myself, so this is a great way to experience other color options.

    25. Fun surprise!  star rating

      Posted by Erin P on 1st Apr 2016

      I received two gorgeous deep and bright green superwash merino sock yarn for my surprise skeins, and I love them! The green will make a wonderful St Patty's Day shawl, scarves, or socks! Thank you, Chandi!! :)

      I wasn't sure what I would get. Two mismatched, for sure.
      SURPRISE is right. I received two GORGEOUS matched skeins of Superwash Dewy DK. The colorway is beautiful. Now I have to find a pattern worthy of this yarn.

    27. Great choice!  star rating

      I was really thrilled with the surprise yarn I got. Two really soft skeins of beautiful yarn that will be some awesome projects. Can't wait to get started!

    28. Beautiful Yarn  star rating

      Posted by Yiran on 15th Mar 2016

      This is a review for several experiences with this mystery yarn option. The first time it was two skeins of New York at night worsted, one of which was absolutely lovely, the other was a bit too dark with little color variation. I get that skeins differ from each other though. Made a scarf and my friend loved it. Another time it was a light purple/grey/silver "Tester" sport, haven't used yet but will probably be a more complicated hat, already found a pattern. Then another "Tester" which I believe is Starry Night sport. Again, lovely color! Haven't decided on a pattern for it yet. Oh and because I'm lazy and don't want to do another review in the single skein mystery yarn, the plum/pink DK (Plum Blossom maybe?) was so soft and stunning! My favorite so far. Made it into a beret. I am very much looking forward to my next surprise. Hoping for new spring/summer colors!

    29. Surprise! It is a beautiful brown  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 7th Mar 2016

      I think I will mix with with the beige/gold I have and make a shawl for a friend undergoing surgery. bright vivacious ginger lady. Will be stunning.

      I have hemmed and hawed about buying some of your yarn and now that I have I am so glad! I took it to my knitting club and they were so impressed that it made it in to our newsletter with a link to your site!
      I have the perfect pattern for it also!

    31. Lovely surprise  star rating

      Posted by Nancy on 23rd Feb 2016

      I received two skeins of a super wash Marino Sock yarn that o absolutely cannot wait to get started knitting with. It's a beautiful dusky lavender colour and feels so amazing soft to touch. I'm so pleased with all of the products I received in my order. It's nice to know that the yarn I drool over on a nearly daily basis is as wonderful in real life as it is on social media.

    32. Love the colors  star rating

      Love the color chocolate covered strawberries. This yarn is great to work with.

    33. Great Quality - Can't wait to get started.  star rating

      Posted by RAD on 4th Feb 2016

      I had always been used to the bargain basement yarn when I did my crochet work. I took a long break for crocheting and when I returned to the crochet world I had the good fortune to meet up with Expression Fiber Arts. I thought the prices were a little steep for me, but now that I have made a few purchases, I find the quality is way above the pricing.

      Thank you for matching these 2 Skeins for me.

    34. A little disappointed  star rating

      Posted by Eve Timmins on 4th Feb 2016

      I was worried about ordering the surprise skeins. The two I got were one of my favourite colours...red! And lovely and soft yarn too!! I was a little disappointed they were oopsy skeins. Being in Australia means I spend a small fortune on delivery (over another whole skein of yarn to get my order here) so it is a shame I was a bit disappointed with these. Funny how I think in terms of skeins! I will still order more yarn as most of Chandi's yarn is simply gorgeous!

      NOTE FROM STORE OWNER: Eve, I am so sorry you were slightly disappointed. We're getting another skein sent off to you, free of charge, to help make up for it. I hope you enjoy! XOXO Chandi

    35. Love a surprise!  star rating

      Posted by Bobbi Warburton on 2nd Feb 2016

      If you don't need a specific color or weight of yarn, this is the way to go! I have ordered these a few time and have been ecstatic with the yarns I received! Not to mention, this last time I saved an additional 38% on a yarn I had been eyeing. This is a great deal on these gorgeous yarns!

    36. Definitely a happy surprise  star rating

      Posted by Genesis on 30th Jan 2016

      I ordered 2 of these and received four skeins in 2 different colors. Both of which are in the purple family and are DK weight. From what's on the label, they were tester shades and are beautiful.

      They were a surprise, for sure, because (for whatever reason) I've been working with a lot of fingering weight yarns lately. In fact, I've only purchased fingering weight yarns from EFA so I was expecting this order to be more of the same. I was blissfully wrong.

      The skeins make a lovely addition to my collection and I'm currently searching for patterns I can use them with. I may even do a jumbo cowl/snood using all four skeins since they compliment each other nicely.

    37. Absolutely awesome  star rating

      Posted by Barbara on 27th Jan 2016

      I received my order quickly and was excited to find out which skeins came.
      Mine matched. A dewy dk in a gorgeous red/pink/white color. I immediately fell in love. They are soft and beautiful. They have a gorgeous sheen. I am making a wrap for valentine's day, but it can be used year round. This was very fun and I plan on ordering again. The surprise of not knowing what it was made it fun (like opening a great birthday present). Also it is a great value cost in price.

      Posted by Andrea S on 26th Jan 2016

      I enjoyed my mystery skeins so much the last time, I came back for more. The bar was set pretty high from my first mystery skeins purchase so I had to convince myself not to be disappointed. You win some, you lose some.. blah blah blah. Holy Knitting Needles Batman, she did it again!! I got two lovely resilient socks in a gorgeous Turquoise Blue. You are making it hard on yourself Chandi raising the bar like you do, but heartfelt thanks for doing so!

      Posted by Marion on 14th Jan 2016

      My two surprise skeins are Pearlescent Silk Worsted, in an unnamed, but breathtakingly beautiful. The shade is a deep saturated blue, so plump and shiny. Awesome value for money!

    41. A little worried  star rating

      Posted by Andrea S on 11th Jan 2016

      I admit it, I was a little worried. I was treating myself to a birthday gift and I didn't want to be disappointed. Not that I don't love practically everything this woman touches, more so that I would have the same experience that I had with a yarn subscription service. When they came out with the spoiler, I loved every color...except one. Guess which one I got?!
      Not the case here. She sent me two hanks of beautiful yarn I love, but that I probably would not have picked out. It's so soft and squishy! I tried to find a pattern, but nothing was good enough for my yarn. I think I will just keep it for a while as a pet. I will love it, and kiss it and call it George...

    42. Oh What Fun!  star rating

      Posted by Ellie on 21st Dec 2015

      Chandi''s yarns are so soft, dyed beautifully, and all work into beautiful items. I love surprises, I love these yarns, so I ordered 3 sets! My surprise was 3 sets of warm shades of fall colors yarns. Now I can think about what they will be used for, which will be another surprise! This is much more fun than just buying yarns. AND, Chandi added beautiful stitch markers, lip baum (love it, really need it) and candy! Really, could you ask for anything more? !

    43. If one loves a surprise...  star rating

      Posted by Aimee on 17th Dec 2015

      Then it is a must that you order the surprise yarn. I received 2 skeins of a lovely silver-dark gray color and they're just amazing. So very soft and squishy! The best part? Human hands made and dyed this yarn and it shows. You can tell, maybe even feel, the care and love that went into it. That's the best part of it all. 2

    44. Simply amazing!  star rating

      Posted by Cristina Vergne on 7th Dec 2015

      This yarn is fabulous! Super soft, super cozy and super gorgeous. I've made 3 lovely earwarmers out of my first skein and am thinking a scarf for the second. I can't wait!

    45. Happily Surprised  star rating

      Posted by Rachel F. on 7th Dec 2015

      I like surprises, though with these types of things I am usually left wanting. However, when I received my two surprise skeins I was giddy. Not only were they soft and squishable but they were of the same coloring and were such fun colors. I was such a happy convert that I already ordered two other 2 skein surprise sets!

    46. Sock Patterns, Here I Come!:)  star rating

      Posted by J Counts on 3rd Dec 2015

      I was not sure at all what to expect about the mystery skeins and was definitely excited about the possibilities. I was not disappointed! It was a lovely shade of green, aptly titled "Green Bean". It might not have been a color that I would have chosen for myself but I really DO love it . That is the great part about having somebody else choose something for you, is that it can help get you out of your comfort zone! This yarn actually makes me WANT to knit my first pair of socks. No, SERIOUSLY, I immediately started looking at sock patterns yesterday! These gorgeous green beans, oops (LOL)... skeins are going to make wonderfully cozy and cute socks! Thanks so very much!:)

    47. Gorgeous!  star rating

      I loved the anticipation of what colors I would get. I am so pleased with the soft, luscious yarn I received and can't wait to make something with it!

      Posted by Cathy on 18th Nov 2015

      I've purchased suprise skeins a few times and am never disappointed. I love the choices that are made. It feels like Chandi remembers all my previous orders and selects exactly what I will love. Gorgeous!
