I purchased this yarn to make a scarf and it's beautiful. Soft and silky around the neck...some of the easiest yarn to work with that I've ever used. Colors are beautiful, too. All in all, I'm very happy with this product and satisfied with the outcome of my project.

This yarn is truly a dream. It is the softest yarn I have ever knit with, including cashmere, without the pilling and shedding. The drape is wonderful and it is pure pleasure to knit with. I only wish it came in more variegated colors.

Very prompt delivery to Australia. The sock yarn is luxurious and I am looking forward to knitting the Seamless Lace Stockings and also a lace design wrap.

If you've ever thought of what the perfect yarn to make a sweater would be, this would be it. I knit a pair of socks for someone as a gift with this yarn. It was a gift to me just to knit it! The whole time I was making them I kept thinking how nice and lightweight, but warm and oh so soft and squishy a sweater would be. Now I've got enough to make a sweater and will be searching for the perfect pattern. Oh, the socks turned out great and have worn well too. Great service too!

The drape is simply beautiful. The consistency throughout the skien is fantastic. It knits up so nicely and beautifully that it seems to take no time at all! Truly a pleasure. I'm making a light summer shawl and I couldn't be happier with this yarn'
