I’m 60 yrs old and have been knitting since I was 7 or 8, my grandmother taught me. Made house shoes for years then at 21 made my first sweater. Olive green (of course :O>) mohair to go w/ ski pants. Got it all done, made the buttons w/ yarn & rings, etc. and I didn’t like in on me :O(. am trying sweaters again, but mostly scarfs.
Now to the reason I’m posting. Fiesta’s Chinchilla is the yarn from hell, hell to wind from hank and hell to knit…although the texture and color are gorgeous, the fabric leaves a LOT to be desired. Seems it showw every nuance, when I take a breath…etc. I ordered 6 colors to the tune of $150 to make scarfs for Christmas gifts and I’m wondering if I’ll be able to. 2 of the hanks need a clamp on the yarn when not knitting or the yarn starts slipping on the needle turning into big loops, other than that, it’s the worse yarn I’ve ever worked w/ and I’ve worked w/ some real doozies…at least the fabric turned out decent, which I can’t say the same for Chincilla. Fiesta shouldn’t have just discontinued it, they should have pulled it off the markets!!! I feel like calling them back and request they send me the colors I chose in another fiber, Cyn
