I used these 2 colors of Zarina to make the swatches for ShawlStar and I loved the yarn! Squishy, great stitch definition, sproingy and not splitty. Oh and it blocks beautifully!
Take a peek at a few swatches. I wet blocked the pink swatch and steamed the yellow swatch and both methods worked really well. Working with this yarn made me think more about using it in a project myself, and now you can have some for yourself!
