Perfect yarn for a Fisherman Knit afghan Review by Emily

I recently purchased this yarn for the first time and am totally in love with it. The color is so rich and creamy, and is perfect for the Aran (Fisherman knit) afghan I just finished. I never found one knot in the yarn as I was working, and that was a pleasure in itself. It is the perfect weight for the size 8 needles I used, and my finished product is one I am very proud to give to my nephew and his bride as a wedding gift. I will definitely be purchasing more of this yarn!

another favorite Review by Gene

I could almost say look at my review of MM Starlette and see ditto, but I'd like to add a thing or two for this particular yarn. It is a much fuller yarn than the last standard one I had used, even though both are rated worsted weight. It partly shows in the yardage per skein, although these are 4 oz instead of the 3.5 standard, but the yardage is less than the one I used before. So if you're working up a duplicate of another project, you might want to check the skein yardage of both yarns or risk running out of yarn using this one.
The benefit is a much fuller piece of work and at the selling price buying another skein or 2 is not generally a hardship. It is well worth it for the finished project.
I agree with Nancy that that flaws are few and far between. I used close to 45 skeins last year to make 2 queen-sized Aran afghans and I don't think I came across more than 1 or 2 in all those skeins. Any flaw is frustrating but some yarns I've bought from another company seem to have 2 or 3 in every skein, even of their own brand yarn.
The one complication I had was that the first batch of yarn I bought seemed to have more yarn per skein than the second and later batches I've bought. I put that down to differences in mills or start-up issues. So again for any large project I would buy extra - there's always another scarf to be made using anything left over. And no, I'm not a Mary Maxim employee - I just don't like running out of yarn of the dye lot needed.
In short this is another favorite and standard yarn for me.

I made a sweater from this yarn. It was beautiful. The yarn pulled out easily from the middle, no snags or bunched yarn, no splitting of the yarn while crocheting. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Great yarn. I now want to made an afghan with it.

I purchased this yarn mainly because of the name, Irish twist. I am making an afghan for a friend who is Irish and thought this would be a good choice. Working with this yarn is such a joy. It is soft, nice texture, and no flaws in the yarn at all.......so far i have used 9 skeins and not once found a flaw....I take pride in my afghan/blankets, and I already have a request for another made from the same yarn...Can't say enough good things about your Irish Twist yarn!!!!!!
