Very nice.

Absolutely Beautiful colourways - soft, luxurious feel to yarns.

I couldn't be more pleased than I am with the lovely Xcaret shawl kits I just bought. (Pivone & Metal). Exquisite colourways!!! Since I prepare prior to beginning projects, I'm still at the stage of making gauge swatchs to determine whether bamboo or metal needles will be best, studying the pattern construct & graphing the body but the 'feel' of the yarn is so lovely as is the stitch definition. I'm eager to get these preliminaries out of the way so I can begin. I saw the article written about Bicotte Yarns in Vogue magazine and how very true it was. Lovely shop, lovely products all around.

Thank you Barbara Maas for your comment. We are glad to here that you are pleased about our lovely yarns. Keep going with your good work and don't hesitate to send us picture of your final result :)! ♥


Do you have the yarn (both) that the one with blue lace at the bottom of the pattern?
