I purchased 3 generously sized skeins & made 2 beautiful shoulder shawls, used the remainder to make a third one along with complimentary colors BECAUSE I JUST COULDN'T STOP RUNNING THIS YARN THROUGH MY FINGERS till I used it all up -- toughest decision will be which color to buy next!! Roberta.
I had a skein of this for a pair of socks for my husband. Loved the colorway so much that I had to buy another skein for me.
This is such a well-behaved, polished yarn. The silk adds strength and a little sheen which makes stitches come to life and gives the overall fabric a lovely drape and elegance. The yarn is smooth and easy to knit with, it blocks well, and is a perfect weight for an indoor sweater. The colors are just mesmerizing! I love how this yarn is so saturated with color yet maintains a gentle varying of shades.
I couldn't be happier with this gorgeous yarn. The colorway is beautiful and the yarn is so soft! Highly recommend!!
Beautiful shawl with this yarn-soft, easy to knit, compliments galore
