Any had experience with these Caron yarns?
Have been experimenting with 2 new yarns by Caron: Spa and Country. They feel great and the colors are vibrant but I must say the yarn tends to separate, especially the Spa (acrylic and bamboo). Their Country ( acrylic and merino wool) is a little better but still seems to splay out over the needle as I work. Forget ripping out or backing up stitch by stitch. The yarn is fried after one use. One skein I opened was unraveling inside! I like the look but don't think I can work with it. If it does this on the needle how will it wear? Am I inept, unlucky or what? Your experiences please?
Jean
