This yarn has a great texture. It is fine yet seems very strong. I have not finished my scarf yet but I am looking forward to seeing how it looks as I have never used cotton slub before.
The yarn came very quickly after I ordered it.
I am really happy with the kit and scarf! This is my second project on the rigid heddle and it went smoothly. I agree with one reviewer that the scarf probably doesn’t need to be as wide. It ended up kind of heavy/dense after washing. I think I would cook wearing it in the summer. The yarn did break once when I was warping, but I just tied the ends together in a knot and kept going. The yarn is so forgiving that I can’t even tell where the knot is anymore.
I am a fairly new weaver and bought a couple of kits to make sure I got the right yarn. The scarf was beautiful in the picture. However when I tried weaving it, the warp strands broke like crazy! About 3-5 strands broke with each beat. I don’t believe the warp was too tight. I think the 12-dent heddle has too small of holes. I will not buy this yarn again unless an 8- dent heddle works. The pattern called for a 12- dent.
I'm looking forward to starting this pattern, It is clearly written and the tabby lets the cotton shine.
