Review: Mountain Colors Twizzle Yarn

Today I'll be reviewing Mountain Colors Twizzle 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.

First off let me say that this yarn is just lovely. I am so happy to have been introduced to it. Twizzle is a worsted weight merino wool and silk blend that has a fun twist pattern to it. The colorway I received was Harmony Mist, a combination of blues and greens that gave the yarn an altogether turquoise look. Have a gander!

So pretty! The yarn is delightfully squishy and soft, even more so when worked up. I decided to whip up a little double crochet and shells hat with it to see it in the round.

Thanks to the great yarn this hat turned out soft, squishy, and flexible. Very nice! I really like the heathered look of the yarn. I was excited that I had enough yarn left over to work it up in rows as well. Here's an ear-warmer I hooked up in alternating back and front loop half double crochet.

I think I like the pooling a little bit better in rows than in the round, but just by a little. Pooling is what happens when the colors of a multi-colored yarn group together in the finished product. Even after both of these projects I still have a little yarn left. What do you think I should do with it?

This yarn is totally a new favorite of mine. The colorways are pretty, the yarn has a great texture, and it works up smoothly. I unhesitatingly recommend Twizzle for your next project.
