    Comments about Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk:

    Recently completed a Forest Path entrelac shawl in white Heritage Silk and it blocked out beautifully. The yarn is a bit slippery on steel needles, but a few rows of practice overcame that. The same silky slickness and sharp needle tips made even 7-stitch nupps a breeze! Luscious softness makes it ideal for scarves and shawls. Only complaint: too slippery for ball winders, so had to hand wind into balls. Tangles come apart easily, so minor trade-off for fantastic stitch definition and drape. Can't wait to try the Heritage Silk Paints on a Hitofude cardigan.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Enjoyed the usual prompt delivery from Webs. Appreciate the welcome discount policy on large orders, too. Only complaint - first time this has happened - was the white Heritage Silk hanks were tossed in loose among the bagged yarns, so both picked up dust/black grime during transit. Washed out fine, so no problem, but a plastic bag would have prevented that.

            I used this for a hat (Komi Cap). It is wonderfully soft, and the colorwork stitches come out crisp and clear. It is a fairly fine fingering weight--size 0 or 1 needles worked well for me. I wish they offered more colors! The navy is a little dull, but the even, steady tone of it makes it good for this geometric colorwork pattern.

                I live this yarn for color work and cabled items. I keep a tub of each color in my knitting box so I will have it handy to choose the right color doe the next project.

                    If you like Heritage, you'll love Heritage Silk! My new go-to yarn. Made a big shawl, planning a lightweight sweater next. Good value for the money.

                        I used Heritage Silk by Cascade for two projects; mathcing gloves and cowl. The sock weight Heritage yarn worked beutifully to create a lace design on the back side of the gloves. I then chose to use it double-stranded to create a matching cowl that had a variety of patterns throughout. This yarn has sheen, bounce and great stitch definintion.

                          I really liked this yarn! I used it to knit a shawl, and was really pleased with the end result. Fabric was soft and had very nice drape. Was easy to tink (not that I would ever need to do that).
