I am finishing my 2nd adult sweater, and have knit hats and 3 childrens sweaters with felici worsted as I ?? it. It's so soft, knits beautifully, and I am very sad that it's being discontinued. While I love dying my own yarn and it comes undyed, Please KEEP IT!

Smooth, soft & machine washable but, the best part is the vibrant color of Hawaiian flowers. I like the tropical native Polynesian vibe of Aloha spirit. Sad this Felici line is being discontinued though.

Please please please, do NOT get rid of this yarn!! For those of you who haven't tried it - yes it is loosely plied, may have some knots but in general it is great yarn due to it's softness and squishiness and works up AMAZINGLY as cowls and hats or mittens, even sweaters. Definitely a yarn for fussy kids who dislike scratchy wool.

When I started using this yarn, I was going to give it five stars. However, there is a huge problem - the joins are just knotted together, and there's none of the additional yarn left. The knots are so tight you can't untie them, and with no additional yarn, there's no way to weave the edges in. I was using this out in public and had no choice but to keep knitting and leave the knot there, or to stop and not knit for the next two hours. The gifts is ruined. Sure, I can keep the mitts for myself, but I bought Spaceman specifically for a friend. That being said, OMG THIS YARN IS SO SOFT. Seriously soft. I'm a bit glad that I'll get to keep the mitts for myself ;-)

I was really excited to try this yarn because I'd seen rave reviews. It's wonderfully soft. The first skein was perfect and made a great pair of socks. The second ball was wound the opposite direction and a whole purple section was unusable because it wasn't dyed totally and totally mangled. There were also at least 4 knots in the second skein. Now I'm not sure I want to work with it anymore.

This yarn is soft and pretty BUT where the colors change is very muddy and there are too many knots. Not the quality I expected. Colors are really pretty but i am disappointed

Yes! Please, please quit eliminating the yarn colorways. Many of us would prefer that the Felici yarn line be standard like Stroll, Hawthorn, Pallet and Brava, etc. I also would like more of the Rainbow Felici in both Fingering and Worsted weights. Thank you.

lovely yarn. But PLEASE bring back the Rainbow colorway! I wish your colorways didn't appear and disappear the way they seem to. often, especially with this type of colorway, I want to knit it up to see if I really like it and then order more. Then when I go to order more, it is gone! So disappointing,

I'm a little bit disappointed in this. I got 2 skeins specifically to make socks for my husband with matching stripes. The first was fine, but the second had 2 knots and a frayed spot. I won't be able to match stripes now.

This is one of my favorite yarns. It's smooth while working, soft in the skein and finished item, and makes for nice even stitches with great definition. I don't generally work with striped colorways because I usually don't like the color combinations, but I LOVE Baker St. Please bring it back!

I love the Time Traveler color way. I need more of it though!! when is it going to be back!!!

Please bring back the Baker Street colourway. Yarn it's a bit splitty as it is lightly spun and I personally knit on a smaller needle than recommended but it is great for colourful hat or mitten projects.

I wish I could order more. I love this yarn. It is so incredibly soft and squishy, is easy to work with, and the colors are amazing with NO joins. This was part of my first knitpicks.com order. I'm very impressed and I'll be ordering again.

To be fair, I haven't knit with it yet, but it is soft, gorgeous, and it shipped quickly. I ordered three colors, and I can't wait to use it. I would love a solid for to make a sweater.

Bought some of this yarn. What lovely colours and SO soft! Well done, just beautiful to knit with.

I love the feel of this yarn. I am crocheting three shawls and it works up really nicely. The only problem I ran into is once in a while the ply separates but I have that problem with yarns and crocheting all the time. For some reason knitting does not cause the yarn to separate as much as crocheting does. The texture is so soft and the colors play out really well. I wish I would have bought more of the same color at the beginning so I could have finished my shawls sooner.

I just received Rustic and Wizard for sweaters. They are my first Felici worsted weight and they feel so soft. I hope more colorways will show up and this isn't the end of this line.

I just received my rustic colorway and wizard colorway for sweaters and OMG, I love the colors. The yarn is so soft and yummy. I can't wait to get started but awe, I must have patience and finish a WIP tester first. I now want skeins of every color. I really hope the felici worsted will not disappear completely and will come back in different colors.

When this yarn came out, I bought 12 skeins as I knit a lot of boot socks and I was thrilled to find worsted Superwash Merino with nylon for durability. It saves me the trouble of adding wooly nylon serger thread to the toes and heels. The Rustic and Baker Street knitted up beautifully. I'm working on Madrigal right now and one skein is really poorly dyed. Quite a bit of white showing. Other than that, I love the yarn.

Just got two skeins of this in the mail. Love that the colours are true and how soft it is. I am however very disappointed with the huge knot in the middle of one skein joining pieces of yarn together. It is going to be very difficult to hide that .

What can I say? I love this yarn. It's so soft. It is a little splitty, but nothing I can' deal with. I love how it works up super fast and it's a bargain price! I knit baby hats for charity and I was able to get three newborn hats with pom poms on two of them and I had some yarn leftover. This will definitely be my go-to yarn. It liken it to Cascade 220 Superwash in that it's soft and durable and washable. I will stock up if it ever goes on sale! Love it!

Oh this yarn is wonderful, an instant favorite. It is sooo soft and buttery and the colors are really fantastic. I knit a pair of mittens for my son who is super sensitive to wool and he won't take them off! I can't wait to do a sweater out of this yarn, please please please never take it away!

Working with this right now making a baby blanket and WOW it's easy and beautiful to work with! So soft with perfect stitch definition and machine washable to boot! I'm so happy you came out with this but I would also like to know what yarn you recommend as a solid to go with it.

LOVE LOVE the worsted felici yarn! I can finally make a blanket and cannot wait to curl up with it while I knit and read :)

I just have a comment. I would love to buy this yarn, but can't get a visual of some of these color combinations. It would be wonderful if each color was shown made up, such as in a hat or even a dishcloth, so we could see how the colors look. The one you show in the picture is great.

This looks like beautiful yarn. I have a question (maybe a silly one). It looks like a kind of variegated yarn. So how does it knit up in exactly even rows like that?

5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely loved knitting with this yarn. I'm not much of a sock knitter, so I love having these stripes in a heavier yarn.

I knitted a dress of Felici fingering weight yarn, color "Salt Water Taffee," for my 4 1/2-year-old granddaughter. The result absolutely delighted her, and she pronounced it "so softee cozy." I machine washed and dried the garment before wrapping and sending it, to make sure it would be easy-care for her mother, and the dress came out of the drier beautifully. I see you only have Felici worsted weight at the moment; I hope you bring back the fingering weight soon, as it is a champ. A pleasure to knit.

SO HAPPY TO SEE THIS! Question though KP.... What yarn do you recommend using as a solid worsted WITH this new yarn in a project?
