This yarn is used for my little dolls I design. I crochet a little head of hair for them and this yarn has just enough fuzz and then it has an added element of surprise with the tinsel. I love the color and the gold tinsel makes it look vintage.
I will certainly buy this yarn again in other colors as well!

Yarn is easy to knit but difficult to unravel because of the fluffy structure. It little itchy, I wouldn't recommend to use it for scarves or hats, maybe only for decorative parts of it. I made cape from this yarn. It's absolutely gorgeous! And warm. I get a lot of compliments on it.

      Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

      Service is always good at this site. This purchase was a mistake. It has all the elements of a yarn that does not please me. It is too coarse and too fine. The tinsel is just tinsel and looks like what it is. Textures mean a great deal to me.

          Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

          I bought the Simonetta pattern book to make a sweater out of this yarn. I'm using the purple mulberry color and it's such a pretty color. Perhaps a little too much gold flecks for my taste, but overall, the effect is very lovely. It knits up quickly using size 8 needles. It catches/snags on my skin unless I moisturize my dry hands. I think the sweater will be really nice, though. And I love Louisa Harding yarns and patterns!

          Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

          I made a sparkly, shimmery acrylic mohair-type yarn stole for evening wear that is a show-stopper. Women ask me where to buy one and then if I will make one for them. The yarn seems to no longer exist except as cheap fakey-looking knock-offs, so I am trying this yard to see if it will produce a similarly elegant, sumptuous, soft shawl. The olive color with gold patches is different from the all over soft shimmer of the other, but quite beautiful in the skein. I can't tell you yet about the knitting experience, as I am finishing up holiday gifts at the moment, but I am excited to start the project as soon as possible.

            I have a lace scarf half made, and this yarn is really nice to knit. It works easily, and unknits just as easily when I make a lace error!
            Has more body than you would expect for such a fragile looking yarn, and fabric looks good, not flimsy.

                    Yarn at first appears stiff but softens up beautifully when washes. Glitter is nice accent without overpowering. Makes up into a lovely shawl.
