Not all designer yarns are overpriced.

Upscale for the Masses

The yarn I review this week comes from one of the most prominent design firms in Europe. It's brand new and has exquisite pattern support from the firm's own accomplished designers.

If you're assuming that this kind of pedigree came with a high pricetag, think again.

It's actually one of the most reasonably priced designer yarns I've looked at this year. Learn all about it in this week's review.
