Sale! Paragon Sport Yarn

$5.99 - $7.49 50g / ball  Original Price: $7.49

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. Retail: $7.49

This yarn feels fantastic to knit with. Haven't blocked it yet. The turmeric is a browned off gold that is complimented by the luster of the silk. Not sure if this yarn will halo with washing. I hope not because i feel it will detract from the sheen. Love the heavy twist to the yarn. It stops splitting. Only request.... please more colours in this yarn. Would love to knit a sweater in it

This is a great yarn with good stitch definition...nice to work with. I wish more colors were available.

This is wonderful yarn - in lushly beautiful colors. I made scarves for my son & son-in-law. One was done in Bison (a discontinued color) Almond and Kenai. The second was done in Ash, Kenai, and Silver. Both were done in a basket weave pattern. The results were simply gorgeous. I'm only saddened that there are not more color choices (included the now unavailable Bison), as I'd like to make scarves from by brother, and grandsons. Also would like to see the yarn available in 100 gram balls.

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.
