        Comments about Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Silk:

        This is a lovely raw silk yarn. I was so glad to find it on WEBS. No, it's not the softest, but it's not supposed to be and that's what I love about it.

        Comments about Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Silk:

        This yarn seems a bit rough for silk yarn. I made it into a nice summer top, but feels OK against the skin. Doesn't feel like silk yarn at all.

          This yarn is not really soft, but it gives good stitch definition. I used it on a shawl with a textured stitch that showed up nicely. I ordered some more for small pouch type bags.
