Please keep this yarn line! The density is fantastic and produces an amazing garment. It really feels different to the normal swish to me. Swish yarn does stretch out but a careful whirl in the dryer brings it back to shape.

I got Andromeda Speckle to make a cowl for my 6 year old. The colors are brilliant and the base looks like a muted purple rather than gray to me. The yarn is a superwash, so will stretch out while it's wet, but if it's still too stretched out once it dries, it should shrink up in the dryer.

I love this yarn! I bought it to make a winter hat, scarf, and gloves. It is easy to work with, and it is just beautiful in person. I personally bought the blueberry and the confetti.

I just hand washed the cc copy cat hat to block. Thinking I would just put it on my hat form, I don't always block my hats but it was suggest since it is a double brim to block it, to crisp up the fold edge. It has stretched out so badly I am afraid it is ruined. It is at least 3 times the original size. I have rolled it in a towel several times it is now air drying, I am hoping it will go back to its original size and the fibers will shrink back up. It knitted beautifully, but I could not believe how much it grew when I soaked it. I am very upset about it.
