Absolutely beautiful yarn

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.

I started knitting my daughter a sweater with it and it knots so well! I’ve always enjoyed Biscotte and Cie company. Thank you!

A luscious yarn

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.
