Review: This yarn is not something I would normally buy myself, although the colours are very attractive and vibrant (the photo's don't really do it justice) but this yarn was a gift from one of my close friends. She's not a yarn expert by any means, but she was very attracted to the colour and thought I could make something out of it, and if you take a moment to surf through the website of the yarn-tistic arts of Mr. Rhichard Devrieze himself you can tell he really is an artist. The colours featured are all very unique and [appear] to be very vibrant! Either that or he has an excellent yarn-photographer on his side. But I don't doubt after working with this yarn myself, the quality and the richness of the colours are definitely there, and will make all of your creations with this yarn pop!

Overall, I did enjoy working with this yarn, and after a baby slouchy hat and a pair of mittens, it feels like I have a lot left of the skein which always pleases me. I wouldn't recommend this for anything with large seaming "gusset" area connections, or be prepared to reinforce these area's if your tension isn't naturally super tight. I would also not recommend this yarn for any garments that do not require excessive amounts of stretching as this is a very stretchable fiber. This yarn is perfect for slouchy hats, or socks! I would not recommend for sweaters, coasters or cozy's (that don't stretch).
