I have a new yarn to share with you all this week from our friends at We Crochet (crochet.com). It’s called Preciosa Tonal Worsted and it is currently available on the We Crochet website in worsted weight but you can get this same yarn in bare fingering weight yarn as well. Today we’ll just be talking about the Preciosa Tonal Worsted. While shooting the video for this yarn review, my husband (who kindly edits all my videos) made the connection between the pronouciation of this yarn and a clip from Harry Potter (my fave!). He even put something about it in the video so now I’ll never forget how to say Preciosa.
This yarn was provided to me free of charge but all opinions are my own.

Check out the video yarn review of We Crochet Preciosa Tonal Worsted yarn:
I have two different colourways of Preciosa Tonal Worsted to review: Cacti (the green one) and Summer Sky (the blue one). The colours in person are bright and beautiful. It’s hard not to fall in love with them. I had a small heartbreak moment when I realized after starting my video review of this yarn that I had accidentally cut through my yarn when I opened the box my yarn arrived in. Blue is my favourite colour and when I realized that the Summer Sky hank had been cut through and left me with a lot of yarn lengths only two arm lengths long, I cried a little inside. It got put on a time out until I figure out something with short rows to use it with or a small project to use the remainder of the intact yarn on.
Working with Preciosa Tonal was pleasant I thoroughly enjoyed how subtle the colours changes in this yarn happened. I honestly didn’t even notice the yarn changing as I worked. It wasn’t until I stepped away and took a look at my swatch did I notice the colour changes. I loved how they looked and they weren’t abrupt or in your face. They just create this pretty, soft colour change that was great.
This yarn is very soft and looks like a squishy cloud. I’ve squished this yarn in the hanks more times than I can could. Even my husband who isn’t into yarn or crochet has gone out of his way to give this yarn a squish and comment on how nice it is.
As with most roving yarns, there was a little bit of a halo/fuzz factor but it was really minimal. Because it’s a roving yarn, there were no issues with splitting and despite being a roving yarn, this yarn has great stitch definition. I don’t tend to use a lot of roving yarns because as a designer, I do a lot of frogging (ripping the work out) which isn’t eay or fun with roving yarns. The yarn gets tangled and then I get frustrated. I didn’t have that issue with this yarn when I used it in the tunisian part of my sample. I ended up doing this tunisian sample twice and both times there were no issues with having to rip it out. I suspect this is because you aren’t wrapping the stitches in the same way as normal crochet stitches. So I may be giving roving yarns a second chance at love with me by using them for tunisian crochet.
My husband is in love with the Cacti colour of the yarn and is begging me to make him something with it so I’ll likely be whipping something up with this yarn in tunisian crochet. What would you like to see made with it?
