        Really, the yarn speaks for itself. It's the softest yarn I have, knits up quickly, and is a delight on and off the needles.

            I really like this yarn, it is super soft and squishy. The only down side for me is that it is super stretchy.

            Comments about Lana Gatto VIP:

            I got the red which was more of a clown red than a deep red, so I did have to overdye it with tea but that worked wonderfully. This yarn is lovely and squishy and soft and feels whisper light. I made a shawl of it that feels so light and soft but is nicely warm - it's pretty fantastic. The one difficult thing about this yarn is that it is so stretchy - that made it a tad bit difficult for me to knit with and make my st st look even. That being said, I would still totally use this again as the way it feels makes it delightful to knit with (and makes the finished product lovely, too).

              Comments about Lana Gatto VIP:

              This yarn is truly lovely - very soft.

              HOWEVER - It is rated as a DK, but I find it to be more of a Fingering weight. I ended up holding it double to get close to the gauge I needed.

              The colour shown on the web page is slightly off. I purchased the Highlighter Orange - expecting bright orange - but the color was closer to a creamsicle color, so a little on the pastel side.

              Project is knitting up very soft and cuddly. I only hope I will be able to get more in the same dye lot - otherwise.....................will have to rip it out and start over :(
