Today I'll be reviewing Jilly Laceweight Yarn from Dream in Color yarn in a special colorway hand-dyed exclusively for A Good Yarn. Disclaimer: I received this complimentary yarn in exchange for a review. I am not being paid to write this review and everything shared here is my real opinion.
I love nature. Even the smallest of creatures captivates me. Look at this beautiful, delicate little moth I found the other day. (Don't worry, my precious yarn is secured and safe from moths)
Nature is so inspiring. Indeed, many designers and dyers are inspired by the great outdoors. A Good Yarn Sarasota loves nature as much as I do, especially sea life. In fact, they've partnered with several yarn companies to develop a whole line of exclusive colorways based on nature, predominately ocean life. Cool, huh?
I was lucky enough to receive this hank of lace weight yarn to try out.
The colorway is called Cabbage Patch, named after cabbage coral. It's a great blend of greens with touches of blue. The hank is very generous in yardage, coming in at 880 yards. That's plenty of yarn to complete any shawl, scarf, or other traditional lace project.
I decided to use this yarn to work up the Summer Sprigs Lace Scarf pattern by Esther Chandler. This project will take me a while to complete, but I think it will be lovely when it's done.
I'll keep you posted on my progress. So far, working with the yarn has been quite nice. When I made a small mistake it also frogged fairly easily, even despite its halo. Sometimes colorful yarns aren't advisable for intricate stitch patterns, but I don't think that will be an issue here. The colors blend subtly enough that I think my finished project will be crisp and pretty.
What do you think of Cabbage Patch?
