Paragon Sport Yarn

$7.49 50g / ball

Bounce, luster, and luxurious sheen - Paragon is the epitome of fabulous! Our newest sport-weight yarn is fabulously squishy due to fine Merino wool. Combined with Baby Alpaca for amazing drape-ability and Mulberry silk for a gorgeous shine, Paragon is sure to become your favorite yarn for projects such as sophisticated cardigans, opulent shawls, and unique scarves. Amazingly versatile, too... knit with smaller needles for a dense, plump, and super-squishy feel; or use larger needles to create projects with lovely drape. Prepare to fall in love.

I absolutely love this yarn, especially on sale!! I had to start a design project several times and Paragon kept its shape, didn’t get all ratty and still looked perfect. I’m planning to knit a short sleeve cardigan and 2 sweater tank tops. The swatches knit up beautifully from US 5 to US 7. The yarn is soft and doesn’t itch me — it’s wonderful!! Ivy is a rich green, Rouge is a subtle pink, Bison a perfect chocolate that worked up a fantastic crocheted shawlette or ponchette that I designed for a friend. If you’ve not tried this yarn you need to; colors are limited however, you’ll be please with the outcome. I might even try to dye BARE Paragon, Working with just the natural color; still looks great! Knit Picks is my favorite go to for sales and yarn needs, always quick delivery.

This is my favorite yarn! Squishy, soft and a nice shine to it! I'm not sure how practical it is to use in every type of project because of the price (at least for my budget), but if I could I would use this as my main "go-to" yarn. Very luxurious and has really beautiful drape! I love this so much and enjoy the colors already offered.

I must amend my previous review of Paragon: I have been advised by people whose color acuity I trust that Enchanted is indeed purple...and a "perfectly purple purple" in fact! My eyesight is obviously not to be trusted; I will refrain from reviewing colors. This yarn feels very scrumptious, especially for a little princess!

Review is based solely on the lack of validity of the color as described for Enchanted..".a resplendent purple " it is not. It is much closer to a burgundy than any purple I have ever seen. Unfortunately it was purchased to make a sweater dress for a young child who loves purple, not burgundy! I am afraid to order any other color because I have no confidence in the image/descriptions given. Too bad, as it feels like a scrumptious yarn.

I am in love with this yarn. I purchase the "naked" version so I can get the brilliant colors I want. I hand painted several skeins and everyone who sees my work is fascinated. I have knit, ripped out because I didn't like my own design and redid. This yarn stays the same quality no matter how many times reknitted. Only downside is that its weight tends to sag, but always bounces back. Great stuff!
