I’m using the kid silk as the second and sometimes third strand in a very complex pattern. Very pleased with texture. Very easy to work with. Also handled pulling and tugging with ease. Really nice wool.
Beautiful mohair and kidsilk👍🏻
Making a very special gift for a friend and wanted to make sure I used the yarn suggested in the pattern. Ravelry suggested Biscotte Yarns and I’m so glad they did! I was able to get all the yarns I needed in one place. Even though it was outside the US, the shipping was the most reasonable I’ve seen. I ordered on Monday and had the order by Wednesday! What? I was seriously searching for a delivery drone because the shipping was so crazy fast. They must have people standing in a warehouse with speed skates on to fulfill the order the second it comes in!! I was just so pleased! Oh the yarn …yes…it was perfect! I’ve not used Drops yarn before. I was very happy with how the project turned out and am considering a sweater with it in the future. I know where I’ll go for the yarn!
Wonderful yarn and quick service.
Pairing this yarn to make a softer fluffy sweater .. I was worried that the color would not be accurate but it was exactly as shown in the photo !
