      I have made several scarves and shawls with this product. This time I'm making a shawl with the body in the "pansy" colorway and using a purple shade of Tonos for the boarder. The "pansy" is gorgeous: lovely colors, so soft. The finished product will be glorious!

            Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Pima Silk:

            I really loved this yarn when it arrived. The color and texture are excellent. But it's a bit finer gauge than I was looking for--to me, it's a true sport weight, not a dk, so I won't be able to use it for the intended project. But it's such a nice yarn, I will find a new use for it.

                It is a little hard on the hands, but knits up soft and beautiful! Love the colors and the feel. Nice, even yarn. I would knit with it again.

                I made hand-warmers from this yarn. It is gorgeous yarn, very brightly, yet tastefully colored. But it started to pile after first use, what a pity. I also don't like 100g skeins, because not all projects need this much yarn, especially at this gauge.

                  Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Pima Silk:

                  I made the Slinky Ribs top from Wendy Bernard's Custom Knits book with 4 skeins of this yarn. I love the combination of silk and cotton. I did knit it up fairly tightly so it would keep its shape better. The body I knit up in a US4, the sleeves in a US3. I am very happy with the results. I actually put this sweater in the washing machine on gentle, then let it lay flat to dry until it is dry enough to hang for the last little bit. Even though the label says to handwash, my sweater does just fine, it has gone through the wash at least 10 times by now. The colours of this yarn are very beautiful, I am planning to make more projects with it just so I can try out different colorways.

                  Tunisian crocheting a skirt with the honeycomb pattern. Love the feel of the yarn, soft and nice drape. The colors are great. Had trouble rolling balls from the hank as it seems to have a twist which tangles. Would recommend this for any spring/summer project.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Outstanding service. Thought I had not ordered enough the first time and was able to order 2 more hanks in the same dye lot and received within a week.

                      This yarn is truly super soft. Worked up, it feels very soft and luxurious against the skin. The hand-paint colors are beautiful and vibrant. I purchased the Tangerine Fizz, and am very happy with the results. This is a great yarn for those who can't wear wool, and for lightweight summer tops. Also great for gloves and other accessories. Love it!

                          I used this yarn to make a wavy drop stitched scarf, and it was absolutely perfect. The short color sections made each drop stitch window a different color, and it is turning out beautifully! I could not be happier with this yarn. It doesn't split at all. The addition of the silk makes it so that the regular cons of knitting with cotton (its lack of stretch and sticky texture) are basically nonexistent. It is a great yarn!
