I have now completed three garments using this yarn - all in different shades. It is a joy to knit with and so soft. The yarn does not split. The last garment I completed was knitted all in one piece - something I have never done before in all my 60 years of knitting - and I was delighted with the result. I am currently trying out another Sirdar pattern using the Intarsia Technique (again something new to me) - joining two pieces at both the front and back of the jumper. Thank you Sirdar for introducing me to newer ways to knit garments and keeping my interest alive. Plus the yarn is quite inexpensive compared to certain other brands which have a self-colouring effect. However, more lighter colourways would be greatly appreciated.
This product is gorgeous. Can't wait to start it. Studio yarn is lovely.
