    I love this lace yarn. It's manufactured with some sort of super-superwash process that leaves the wool feeling like another fiber, very smooth and silky. Yet it retains the ease of handling that makes wool such fun to knit.

    All that said, it's a very, very fine yarn. You get almost as much yardage in a 25g ball of this stuff than you get in a 50g ball of standard lace weight yarn. Note that this makes it half as thick as the lace weight that you may be used to.

    I particularly love it for Shetland lace.

    One ball had a quality control issue - halfway through, the yarn broke apart as I crocheted. It did this a couple dozen times. Other balls were fine. One portion of my shawl has a lot of knots, but they're not really visible and don't detract.

      Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Nirvana:

      I ordered three different colors, and all of them are perfect and incredibly soft, but a lot smaller than I was expecting. It's taken some time to get used to crocheting something so fine but it's worth it.

        Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Nirvana:

        Really love the softness and weight of the yarn. I knit entirely by memory. I don't usually look at the work. With this yarn, I find myself checking a little more often because I cannot feel the yarn in my hand even when under tension. It is a dream to work with. The color options are amazing. The only advice I would have is to use needles with a more tapered tip.

                This is VERY fine yarn but I've found that it knits pretty quickly with larger needles. It is so far creating a beautiful shawl.
