    This is a lovely yarn, very soft and yet very warm. I used it to make a bolero with quite a loose gauge but it is still warm and I get comments and compliments when I wear it :) The sheen makes it more sophisticated as well.

      Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

      I originally bought this yarn in 2 tones of grey to make my husband a hat and scarf because ... boys don't wear colors apparently. When it arrived I spent way too long squishing and playing with the cute little fluff balls and decided I needed this yarn in many colors for my very own scoodie. I haven't made my scoodie yet but my husband likes his granite stitch scarf very much and swears he will actually wear it come winter. The colors are lovely, I have all of my skeins in a basket instead of tucked away in a plastic bin with the others just because they are so pretty.

        Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

        This yarn knit to gauge, very soft,and was a good deal for the money. The only thing i can say is that you cannot frog this yarn multiple times as it begins to unravel and pill.

        Not as soft as expected

          Best Uses

            Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

            With Merino wool and silk content, I expected a much softer yarn (like Malabrigo Silky Merino). Almost done w/ shawl on size 8 needles. A bit scratchy, but okay to knit with. Easy to join ends by wetting and rubbing together to felt. Quite springy and good stitch definition, but no drape and not very soft - where's the silk? Just okay overall.

            Good yarn though there are spots of uneven dyeing. However this is for an afghan and it is crocheting up beautifully.

              I really liked working with this yarn. I loved the texture and for my taste, this yarn is nice and soft. Also, the colours are beautiful and vibrant. I noticed they were on closeout, so i order more to be sure to get the chance to knit with this yarn again.

              Crocheting a sweater that I ripped out a major section. Yarn handled it fine. There are random nubs and joining knots in the yarn. Varies from ball to ball. This made for some lumps. Easy to crochet with. Doesn't split. Nice color.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Great service. Shipped quickly.
