Good end product, wish samples showed colors better Review by Annetta
Price
Ease of Use
Quality

I've made three scarves (Wild Orchids, Still Waters, and Blue Lagoon) all of which I like. I wish, however, that there were actual knitted samples so I could see the variations. Blue Lagoon is pretty, but brighter than I'd have liked, but I'll be gifting it to someone who will appreciate it more than I do..

I also bought Embers (I think that was the name, it's no longer available) which I really disliked because of the bright orange that I didn't see in the photo of the skein. I started a scarf, but disliked the colors so much that I unraveled it and donated the skein to a local arts recycling group.

Love It! Review by Carrol J

Ease of Use

Prisim yarn is both beautiful and fun to use. It has become my favorite yarn. Although I have used a Japanese yarn before that was a wool blend, I discovered it made me itch! Thank goodness you have this terrific yarn without wool. I Love It!!

Did not like this yarn at all Review by Sherry

Ease of Use

While the colors are pretty and the price is reasonable, I did not like the way this yarn felt to touch or the way my project came out. When I work, I like a consistent texture to the yarn I work with. I did not like that this yarn when from very thin to very thick in a couple of stitches.

loved this yarn Review by ruth

Ease of Use

I bought 2 skeins of the Seascape while it was on sale. I am using it to make a shawl and the colors are so lovely. There is a consistency issue where it gets really thin and then large but that is not a show stopper. I only wish I had bought more when it was on sale so now waiting so I can try the other colors. I want to make prayer shawls and thing for nursing homes

Very soft and colorful varieties Review by Susan

Ease of Use

I used this to make a Log Cabin block pattern blanket from Mary Maxim that is no longer available. That is unfortunate, because it used several shades of Prism, so you got to see a variety of the colors all in one blanket and decide which ones you like best. There was also enough yarn left to make several scarves, as each of the colors had about 3/4 ball left after making the blocks. The finished product gives a stained glass effect and is just beautiful.

This is just perfect yarn for girls and boys kindergarten and up they seem to love the different colors the yarn does get thin and go thick sorta scared to use it on the bavarian baby blanket but it is fun and keeps you interested in what project you are doing at the time

I love the colors! I bought Rainbow to make a broom stick lace scarf for me and crocodile stitch booties for a girl baby, Rain Shower to make crocodile stitch booties for a boy baby and Raindrop, just because I love the colors! The yarn thickness/thinness gives the project extra character.

Beautiful color-change, no wool Review by Holly

Ease of Use

Trying to find a sport-weight, self-striping yarn that doesn't have any wool in it is not as easy as it sounds. I purchased this yarn to make this project:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/97686866/crochet-pattern-owl-obsession-a-colorful

The yarn it calls for is beautiful, but has wool in it, which I didn't want to use for a baby.

I was very pleased with the ease of use and the quality of the colors - very bright, with nice long sequences of each color. I could have used a bit less of the hot pink, but that had more to do with my color choice than the manufacturing of the yarn.
