    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:

      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

          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.

              Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

              I got this to make a cardigan. Seeing as it is 25% silk, I expected something a little more... silky. It's about the same texture as most plain low-end wool, fairly coarse. The color is all right but it's not what I was looking for. It's quite a heavy DK, which is ok. It makes a pretty good hat or scarf, which is what I've ended up going with, but don't get it if you're looking for something silky.

                Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

                Eden Silk was the suggested yarn for prayer shawl I wanted to crochet for our church Christmas Sale;
                first - the yarn was not the same shade of green as portrayed in the picture; it was a darker olive green (shade was called: Vine);
                second - this is not a soft yarn as the description of it suggests;
                it is rather coarse, but the shape/drape of the shawl is holding up nicely, so I can see why this yarn used;
                finally, it is hard to crochet with - it does not flow easily thru my fingers.
                I would not use this yarn again !
