What happened?? Where's the beautiful colors of Preciosa? I love this yarn, please tell me you're not discontinuing it!

I have never been more sad to see a yarn line disappear. And frankly, I wish I’d had a heads up so I could buy a bunch! Preciosa is one of my favorite yarns Knit Picks has ever had. It’s SOOOOO soft and smooshy. Not to mention the beautiful slight color variations though out which creates lovely interest. I read some reviews on the non-bare yarn page about it pilling, which is actually true but it’s so soft and very characteristic of super soft merino yarn. I just pick the pills off. I can only hope some day this yarn returns. In the mean time, very sadly, I’ll have to buy a similar yarn from a competitor.

This is the softest, most beautiful yarn I’ve ever worked with. So far, I’ve made a long sweater and several afghans with it. It dyes beautifully, although you need to be careful not to heat it up too much, because it’s fluffy and tends to stick together if it starts felting on you. Love it. Plus, great yardage for the price.
