        Comments about Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light:

        I am a huge fan of ArtYarns. However, the quality on this yarn is poor, especially given the price.

        There were issues with both of the skeins skeins I used in my project(~$90 for 220 yards). This is a 2 ply yarn, and either one or the other strand was often shredded or broken. It would have been very difficult to see these single ply breakages in a casual inspection of an entire skein prior to purchase due to the texture of the yarn. There were also several knots in those places where the both plies had broken. Again, difficult to spot on a quick inspection prior to purchase due to the texture of the yarn.

        Would I buy this again? Maybe - as a decorative object, but not for another knitting project. The high price and skimpy yardage make it difficult to find a suitable project. Add in the quality issues and this becomes a difficult to justify expenditure.

        Too many knots for the price

        Comments about Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light:

        Very disappointed with the yarn. It is lovely, but with only 110 yards per skein, finding three knots on one skein and two knots on another was not acceptable. I highly recommend carefully checking the skeins prior to purchase.

        The uses for this yarn are limited due to the price/yardage and the beading. It drapes well and the beads help weigh down the otherwise light fabric.

          Comments about Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light:

          I got a bit of a shock when this yarn first arrived; it was heavy, and the hank was much smaller than I'd expected. That said, it is a stunning yarn. The silk gives it a beautiful sheen that is only added to by the beads and small sequins.

          I am knitting a snood for my Mum to wear when she goes to the theatre and other such occasions and I think it will be perfect.

          It took me a while to settle on a needle size. I think US6 is the recommended one, but I wanted a more lacy look, so I ended up going with needles a few sizes larger. There's not really much scope for knitting a test square with this yarn because of its price and because there doesn't seem to be a lot of it, but it frogs fairly easily. I had a couple of test runs before I got started on my project in earnest. Unless you've got pots of dosh, I'd recommend it for small, special projects. I think it would make a lovely short-sleeved evening t or tank as well.
