I have used several different brands of yarn. Not all skeins have had knots but once in a while even the best have had knots. I have decide that I like the ICE yarns the best. They have several different ones. The price is reasonable even after paying for the shipping from Turkey. The only draw back is you cannot buy single skeins. I sat here on the internet one Saturday evening and ordered the yarn. I had it on Wednesday.
Another place to look is if you have a Hobby Lobby near you. Their house brand has been good.

Berroco lacy is a great yarn for ruffles and when you buy the yarn there is a pattern inside the wrapping with instructions on how to use this great yarn. It automatically makes ruffles as you go along. You can go to their website and there is a video on how to use it.

I would contact the company and tell them the problem you are having with this package of yarn and that you had used it before without a problem. I did that with yarn that had lots of knots and they replaced my yarn. I offered to send back the yarn, but they didn't require me to do that. I told them how many knots and flaws I was having. They sent the same brand and color and they were all fine.

Thank you for your quick reply. I'll try the ice yarn. I just knitted one with ribbon yarn and didn't like it.
Which one from Ice yarns are you planning making. (Salsa, Flamenco, Samba, or Ballerina) I made the ballerina glitz green color with gold trim. The mesh was very fine. The only problem beside having a lge knot the yarn was torn about 2 inches inside of the yarn. This was right in the middle so I couldn't cut it out.

Do you have Michael's where you live? Their Loops and Threads Charisma yarn is so soft and works up beautifully. It is $4.49 a skein but is almost always on sale for $2.99. A bunch of my friends and I made numerous scarves this winter using their variegated yarn. It looked like we knew how to make stripes!
