I bought this yarn in chocolat color and biscuit color to make a two color brioche knitted shawl. With this yarn knitting has become a sensual experience. I enjoy the softness, the sheen and the beautiful color. Also the single ply lends itself to beautiful construction in the brioche patterns. I love that it is 50% silk and 50% wool in the worsted weight. This is a very unusual combination.
pleased to receuve theyarn...beautiful..now what to do
Loved the Albus, the richness of the colors were breathtaking, my mind is racing with possibilities for this yarn and it is such amazing value!
I started knitting my daughter a sweater with it and it knots so well! I’ve always enjoyed Biscotte and Cie company. Thank you!
This is truly a luscious and classy yarn, so soft and comfy to work with. And the color -- Ambre -- is a mink taupe that can blend beautifully with a second variegated lace yarn that adds a touch of color.
