I made a shawl using colour 53, Amazonite. It came out beautifully, with excellent stitch definition. I'm now making a lap blanket using colour 01, Ocean Jasper. The colour changes in this yarn are so subtle, they give a stunning end result. I would say though, having experienced cake collapse when using Sultan Shadow - it was the first time I had used a 4 ply yarn - I now roll the cake into a ball when I want to start with the centre colour. That being said, this is now my favourite yarn and I'll definitely be buying more.
Made a waistcoat for a work colleague using Sultan (32) Carnelian she was made up with it really happy ! Now I'm making her a shawl with the same Sultan Carnelian . I have more colleagues at work asking me to also make them shawls and waistcoats. I am utterly happy and so are they. What a gorgeous yarn to work with and what amazing colours ! And the customer service also 5 star. Keep up the good work all of you 🥰
Sultan is just so beautiful! The long colour changes are divine, the cake feels like it goes on forever! Such a huge amount of great quality cotton! I wish I could afford to buy all the colours.
These are fantastic for making mandalas, shawls, scarfs, ponchos, beach dresses \ cover ups, crop \ bra tops or lightweight pullovers for the summer evenings. So very versatile
Pink Sapphire (34) - This was my first time working with an untwisted yarn so used a bead to run the four strands through. It didn’t take long to get used too. I absolutely loved the long, subtle colour changes and it totally blew my husband’s mind how I managed to keep it symmetrical! 😂. I shall be using plenty more of this gorgeous yarn 🧶 ❤️
I adore this yarn. It's beautiful, soft and easy to work with.
I'm using no 29 Rainbow Pyrite to make the Classical Attitude shawl and the colour changes look so beautiful I can't wait to wear it.
Will definitely be ordering more colours to make shawls for every season - and I think I know what all the women in my family will be getting for Christmas!!!
