I loved working with this yarn. It is a tactile delight. I made a long cardigan - the winter go-to, goes with everything, wear around the house cardigan.

My first issue, and this really isn't with the yarn, is that it was really hard to find a pattern I liked. I was looking for something that used lace, since I didn't want to overheat, and didn't want to look at yards of stockinette. I finally found a pattern that was sort of ok, but I modified it heavily.

It knitted up pretty quickly and I began wearing it. It feels wonderful! The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is that it pills a lot in the underarm, and this is just after a few weeks wear. I'm afraid that as I wear it more it will pill all over.

However, the beret I made with the leftovers has not pilled at all and is an absolute favorite - the pattern is the Montse beret, free on Revelry.

Since it so wants to pill, I bet it would felt beautifully.

Yarn is wonderfully soft, easy to knit' However there were many SHORT lengths of yarn that I had to tie together. I won't be using this yarn again. By the way I had 6 steins and this problem was a factor in each stein

Luckily I was knitting a scarf with large cables which hid the knots.
The yarn was not cheap and I am surprised because I have never had this problem with Debbie Bliss yarn.

        I am knitting a throw with this yarn using the slip stitch method and it is just gorgeous. The yarn flies through your fingers, knits fast with super loft. It is light yet very warm. I will be seeking other patterns for Paloma.
        So far no knots as end are spliced. Nice touch.
        No negatives so far.

              Super soft. The French Navy has a stronger purple hue than expected but still beautiful.

                  I have not worked with the yarn yet, but it is soft and lovely. I plan to make a cabled cowl. I ordered the soft green, which is a bit more green than what the image shows online--which could be due to the computer screen or just the dye lot.

                    I used this for a cowl. It is heavenly soft. I would recommend this for winter scarves. I am almost always get gauge with the recommended needle size. If you were making a sweater I would recommend going down a needle size for a firmer fabric.

                      Love that Paloma is chunky without being heavy or bulky! It is lofty, owing to the chainette construction, and provides warmth without weight.

                      I used this to make an infinity scarf, knit on 19s with the yarn wrapped twice. It was so lightweight it is like not having anything on, but it is still warm. Because it's a chain yarn it has a lot of stretch.
