    I have made several knitted and crocheted garments with this yarn and I cannot do justice to it's overall performance. Casting on is a dream, stitches glide on to the needle. Working with complex cables is a pleasure, they just "pop" out of the surface and don't drop with wear or washing. This yarn responds well to blocking and does not go out of shape with use. It does pill or ball with wear, but can be removed easily and does not detract from the garment. This yarn is truly a pleasure to work with, you will love it!

    I love the feel and look of this yarn but am frustrated by how many knots and weaknesses I've found. My suggestion is rewind the skeins before you start working before you find one of these defects at an inconvenient place.

              • Scarves

              Comments about Louisa Harding Grace Silk & Wool:

              This product would make anything that is next to skin, it is so soft. I am using it to make a board room scarf. The design is made by making purls and knits. This yarn is showing design wonderfully. I think it would also work well for cables.
              The only reason I gave it four stars is because of splitting.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was spot on. The product arrived in excellent condition. I will buy from this company again and again. Great products, wonderful customer support and quick delivery. What more can one ask for?

                This dyed beautifully with natural lichen dyes (both orchil and non-). Lovely sheen and feel would make it best for scarves. Haven't knitted it yet, that will be an early winter project....

                  this yarn is so soft, it's easy to work with and looks great when it's done. I knit a cape and this yarn fits around the neck (where other yarns would itch). I gave it to a physician of mine. I know she doesn't get anything else like it. She cried. Love this yarn.

                  Comments about Louisa Harding Grace Silk & Wool:

                  This yarn is so very soft and luxurious. Knitting up beautifully into a cabled vest for my husband. The cables are well defined and plump! The only drawback are splices (knotted joins) in the middle of skeins which are pesky and mar an otherwise perfect ball of yarn.

                  It was easy to use the beads.

                  I've made a long vest with this yarn. It broke easy specially on cast on, and I had to rethink the working tension. I've found some knots too. Overall I like the yarn, it is very light and warm and the touch of silk make the colors vibrant. It sheds a bit.
