Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
Bought as a gift for my wife and she loved it. The beautiful flecks, and areas of color complementing the natural areas is striking.
I have no idea what this skein of yarn will become but I knew I had to have it. I was not disappointed. It's very beautiful.
This is a tough one to review because it is very pretty, soft, squishy. It should work up i to a lovely autumn scarf. I guess this is one of those times when the monitor and the colors did not work together. Mineis almost all shades of brown, some deep gold, and gray with a couple of sections of burgandy and a small amount of red. The other colors are there, but almost unnoticeable. I will enjoy working with it because, as always with EFA, it is a beautiful mix and the yarns here always make my knitting look better than it is.The only reason I gave it 4 stars (first time ever to do so) is I am not much of a brown/gray person. I am all about the brighter colors and those are what drew me to this yarn. It is beautiful, soft, etc, just not awash with the blue, purple and magenta. If I had been expecting browns, I would give it all five stars. It is just a reminder that dyes can be fickle.
Oh my! The colors! The softness...yummy! Beautiful yarn. Can't wait to knit it up!
