I used this yarn to make a mermaid tail afghan (which I then took a bad photo of).


I have been avoiding this yarn for years to be honest, I thought it would be sticky to work with and look plasticy when worked up. I was wrong, so very wrong. It is lovely and soft as a fabric and to work with, you don’t notice the (I assume) nylon sparkles to touch and the wool/acrylic is lovely and fluffy.

The knit nature of this yarn has the amazing property of doing away with the whole Z S twist issue that causes so many issues when it comes to yarn selection, so whether you knit or crochet, are left or right handed, this yarn will work for you.
