      knitted a lace pattern shawl with this yarn - it blocked out wonderfully and the drape is great. The different textures add interest, but they don't influence the gauge. The shiny sections in this yarn are a great contrast to the matte sections and the different colors coming with the three different textures are very subtle and tone in tone.

      I used this product for a specific Classic Elite pattern. It has a nice feel, weight, and drape, but the "shiny" spots (where it changes from cotton to all viscose) seem strange to me, especially accompanied by change in thickness and elasticity. Still, this is what the pattern called for. I think the finished product will be very nice.

          I have made 3 cowls with this yarn and each is beautiful! The finished cowl drapes so well and the little bits of "bling" add so much.

                  Service as always very prompt. Yarn color and quality is accurate as described. It worked very well and I alternated it with another cotton/rayon yarn to make a loose (lots of yarn overs) open knit summer vest.

                    Produces a beautiful soft sheen item. Colours and textures combine for very feminine and romantic looking items.

                    After using once I promptly bought several more colours for my stash!!!
