Review from Knitter's Review:

Jo Sharp's designs are alive with color, and this yarn reflects that with more than 52 colors.

Knitting Up

This yarn is tightly spun from long, fine fibers. The result? It wants to be knit. It has a very solid, consistent feel, similar to knitting with a strand of licorice.

There's nothing to snag or twist or otherwise get in the way, because the yarn has been double-combed to eliminate short fibers. I gathered steam quickly. Stitches appeared well-defined and even.

Blocking / Washing

This firm yarn holds its shape even when soaked with water. My swatches behaved like troopers through the entire washing and blocking process.

There was no stretching, bleeding, fading, pilling, or anything. Lifting them out of the water, I saw beautiful, flat, solid squares of fabric.

 

 

Wearing

In her books and in the instructions on the inside of the yarn label, Jo Sharp insists that this yarn will soften with each wash and wear. Ever the cynic, I had to test this for myself. I gave a set of swatches several additional washes.

Sure enough, the solidity of the first swatches gave way to a much softer, more pliable fabric in those that had been washed more frequently. The added softness wasn't the result of any fiber degradation, mind you, but rather from an overall relaxing of the material, making it much more pleasant to touch.

If you like the yarn, you won't have any trouble finding a good pattern for it. Jo Sharp provides a huge variety of patterns for almost every skillset, from simple two-color pullovers to insanely complicated color patterns and Arans.
