I purchased these Transitions Lux yarns from Trendsetter at a very good price as they were being discontinued.
However, I just discovered that these sometimes have quite a few knots in them. To quote from the email I received from the yarn company: "This yarn is just a hit or miss with the knots, very inconsistent...I am sorry for any Inconvenience but this is just the way this yarn is made."
I find this rather dismaying. Honestly I had had no idea when I purchased them and would never have offtered them for kits if I had known.
Here we have set them at the wholesale price. If you want the yarn -- and it is lovely --- just know that knots are a strong possibility.
And please, anyone who bought these in the past for any kit in any colorway (i.e. Transitions Lux): if you have run into an annoying number of knots, do contact us.
The yarn is from Trendsetter's Transitions Lux, a most unusual blend of colors and glitz. Made up of 49% cotton/ 47% acrylic/ 4% metallic each cake is boxed and has a generous 620 yards/ 150g (yes, already wound for you).
Perfect for warm weather and for transition seasons.
1. #111 (Black, White, Cream, with black metal): This is a perfect neutral, very sophisticated indeed. The metallic flecks are very subtle here.
2. #115 (Olive, Cream, Salmon, with green metal): A beautiful summer blend of colors, a bright salmon blending into a beige cream and ending with an olive. The metal parts stand out more here and catch the light beautifully, creating a most striking look.
