Gorgeous Color!

I used this yarn for the Drops pattern 147-1 Crochet Poncho in Paris. The red hue of the yarn is a bright red, in person is less orange than the image shown, truly a gorgeous shade of red! The yarn is soft but it splits a great deal and that makes it annoying to work with. Also, the fact that it's only offered in 50 grs. skeins it's another annoyance. I wish it was offered in 100 grs to save the work and effort of joining new skins so often while working on a project. The final garment looks beautiful tho so I may purchase this yarn once more when it's on sale.

Perfect red

Using it in the sweater pattern DROPS 51-13. I'm very happy with it.
