        Comments about Great Adirondack Petite Silk Noir:

        I was worried about the comments about fragile/breaking and knots, but two hanks had one knot each, (close to the middle) and I have had no problem with it breaking.

        The colors are wonderful, the swatch did bleed heavily when I wet blocked it, so I added a quarter cup of white vinegar to the soak. A second dunking in water didn't bleed at all.

        Quite nice, making the Morning Breeze cardigan, looks fantastic.

          have not yet started any project with this yarn, next on my list
          planning on a rectangle stole, will design the stitch pattern as I go
          this yarn is perfect for my fave garter stitch and because of the richness of the colors will no require complicated stitches

          Comments about Great Adirondack Petite Silk Noir:

          Finally finished the Forest Path Stole by Faina Letoutchaia using this yarn in color Hydrangea, after close to two and a half years' on and off knitting.

          The color bleeds profusely turning the water a deep peacock blue during wet blocking process. Hopefully the color won't fade too much with subsequent hand-washing.

          However the combination of the pattern and this yarn still produced a stunning final product.

          I bought two hanks of this yarn with color hydrangea. Only used the manual ball winder with the yarn draped over my knees, but I did not have problems with yarn breaking with either hank. I encountered one knot less than 10 yds into my first hank, thinking 'oh boy, here we come.' But there were only two more knots into the whole hank. Overall, I have to say I like the colorway a lot.

          How do you knit with this?

          Comments about Great Adirondack Petite Silk Noir:

          I a afraid to knit with this yarn. It breaks if you look at it the wrong way. I started to wind it from my swift onto my manual ball winder. The yarn broke every few yards. I then loosened the swift as much as I could without the yarn falling off, but it still broke. I took it off the swift and started to wind it by hand wile a friend held it, and, you guessed it, it still broke. On a positive note, it only had one knot in the hank. The color is absolutely stunning and that is why I gave it 2 stars.

          Wonderful, but...

          Comments about Great Adirondack Petite Silk Noir:

          I can't believe how many knots are in this gorgeous rough silk yarn. I've only done 2" of the sleeve of a baby sweater and have found 3 knots already. But I do love the texture - and to carry this along with another, brightly-colored, shiny silk (like Valley Yarns 20/2) makes a stunning color play that shimmers without being overpoweringly shiny.
