The color and texture of the yarn is beautiful. The problem sometimes with hanks is why I am not entirely happy with this yarn. Being such a fine yarn putting it into such a long hank resulted in it becoming knotted. Smaller length hank or even a ball would do this yarn better service. I spent 3 hours untangling it to run it on the ball winder. I was very close to just cutting the mess out but I got this yarn so I could knit socks and cannot afford the loss of yarn. Be prepared for this with finer yarns put into hanks - you may run into this extra project of untangling. If that is something you find you cannot handle (I came really close to losing it today myself) hanks in worsted or heavier (4 and up) are usually okay to deal with. Might be okay with DK too but anything lighter the chances seem stacked for serious knotting. This is NOT my first "unknotting" and likely won't be my last either.
Have not started anything with my skeins yet but am loving the color! Great price point as well as stellar service from Paradise Fibers!
This yarn is perfect light fingering weight yarn. I love the weight, feel and rich color.
