        I Love It

              Comments about Mirasol Illaris:

              You do have to be patient winding the yarn - do it on a large flat table and it won't tangle on itself. I'm making a sweater with open/ivy leaf pattern. The yarn knits beautifully and feels great. It is a very good garment yarn. If you're not an experienced knitter, you have to knit a bit slower to make sure that you catch all of the tiny threads in each stitch - but if you've knit enough, that's no problem. I'll use it again.

                Comments about Mirasol Illaris:

                After 30+ years of knitting, I have never run across such a problem!!! Each hank was extremely difficult to wind into balls without tangling to such a degree that I wanted to throw it across the room. After 10 hanks, I'm giving myself a few days to calm down before I start knitting with it!

                Pros

                • Beautiful Yarn

                Cons

                • Too Fine For Baby Blanket

                • Tops Baby Clothes

                Comments about Mirasol Illaris:

                I bought it for a baby blanket, but it's too fine. I know it's dk, but it's thinner than other dks I have purchased. Beautiful beautiful yarn. Will try to find something to make for myself from it. Recommend for crochet lace tops -- super drape and shine. Could make something really special.
