My Review: Austermann Step
I bought this
particular skein from www.loveknitting.com
(great service by the way), partly because of the colour name... Vulcan... Yes,
Darrin and I are Star Trek fans! At the time of purchase I must admit that I
missed the Aloe Vera treatment on the yarn... I just needed a new pair of socks
on the needles for Darrin and preferably 'true stripes', not the faux fair isle
stripes I had been knitting.
When the yarn arrived and I read the label, I remember being
surprised and excited by the prospect of knitting with a new type of yarn. I
remembered a pair of jeans I had once watched being engineered at a factory,
where they were treating the denim with Aloe Vera... The crazy things you do in
fashion! So as you can imagine I was fascinated to see how these might knit up.
The first thing I noticed during knitting was the softness of the yarn and the Aloe Vera. It makes for an incredibly nice knitting experience. One that I would love to repeat!
The stitches remained nice and defined during knitting and I loved that the stripes felt almost blended at the edges, rather than very separate block colours.
I'm giving this a thumbs up and am hoping to buy some again in the future.
