Another one with mixed feelings
The best thing about this yarn is the amazing colouring, and my finished jumper will certainly stand out in a crowd. I used the Chameleon shade.
I haven’t enjoyed knitting with it though. The thickness varies - some bits are almost like an Aran and other lengths are like 4 ply. Fortunately the varied colouring disguises this a bit in the finished garment, but it looks a bit uneven on close inspection. The yarn also splits and untwists. When sewing up I found it broke quite a bit, as it won’t stand constantly being pulled through the work.
I like my jumper, but I won’t be buying any more of this yarn.

Mixed feelings
I have just finished knitting a child's bolero with yarn and the result is very pretty and soft. However I found the yarn quite tricky as on occasions it was very thick and then could go to the opposite and be as thin as sewing thread. It also split easily as was difficult to unpick if an error occurred. (Posted on 08/02/2021)
Knits up very well
I loved the Chameleon and made 2 scarves one for charity and I loved the way the colours came through bought more to make myself one in the same shade. (Posted on 16/12/2020)
Love this wool
I love to knit and crochet this wool is lovely when all crochet up I make shawls very pleased with the finished product (Posted on 15/10/2020)
So soft
Some yarns containing wool can be scratchy. King Cole Riot DK is soft to touch. I've got it delivered today and I can't wait to start making shawls. I bought a few different shades (Rainbow, Juniper and Urgan). They all are so pretty that I don't know which one to use first. (Posted on 20/05/2020)
