I bought 853 Abril - just gorgeous amethyst shade ! I am making crocheted shawl for my sister and I could not be happier with shine and drape that it is already showing in my work : ). This is the first time I am using this yarn and I was somewhat surprised with it's tendency to split, I guess that part is due to silk content. I am using very small hook size (2.00 mm), and that might be also contributing to finicky behavior of this yarn. However, all of the effort will pay off at the end, so I do not mind that this project will take somewhat longer time to finish.

The yarn has a nice feel, but color 'carrot' should have been named 'dark carrot' I found using sz 1 needles made scarf too small. Starting over with larger needles. Using the herringbone pattern; I like the border but guess a heavier wgt. yarn would work up better.

        Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

        I am new to knitting with a lace yarn. Quite frankly, I am new to knitting. This yarn is wonderful. It does not split or fray. It will be my "go to" yarn for lace weight projects. I would not hesitate to recommend it to any knitter. I am using it to make a scarf for my daughter.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I am always pleased with service from WEBS. Orders are delivered promptly and merchandise is well packaged so as to avoid damage to enclosed product.
        My "go to" "store" for yarn, needles, etc.

          I have purchased several of these skeins, love the softness, shine and stitch definition. It blocks beautifully and is possibly my favorite silk blend! My only wish is for more color ways!

            My plan is to knit a light weight cardigan on my standard bed knitting machine. I haven't swatched it yet, so can't comment on how well it handles. But it feels like it will be easy to manage and should knit up easily. The color range is beautiful!

            Feather-light, strong, and gorgeous

                  Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

                  I am in the process of knitting a lace shawl, a project which will take months to complete. For such a long-term project, I wanted a yarn that would keep my interest and inspire me to complete the task. Malabrigo's baby silkpaca, color: solice, is the perfect choice. The knitted fabric is baby-soft and the color is subtle and dreamy. I love this yarn!

                  I recommend you use bamboo needles when knitting this stuff - metal needles were so slippery that I was constantly dropping stitches. The plastic needles weren't sharp enough to get both needles into a stitch. The bamboo needles are quite sharp and "sticky enough" to keep the stitches on the needles.

                            This yarn worked up beautifully, and was very "forgiving" of mistakes (knitting could be taken apart without compromising the quality/strength of the yarn)

                              I am currently knitting up a scarf (cowl) with this yarn. It knits up well, no splaying of the yarn, no fuzzing. The colour is true to the picture on the Malabrigo site. Very soft with a nice shimmer.

                                The yarn was absolutely gorgeous, and so incredibly soft. (I shamelessly pet it occasionally!) I can't wait to make a shawl out of the skeins I bought.
                                My only issue was that it wasn't true to color. That's just the nature of products with dye lots; I just happened to get a VERY, VERY GREEN dye lot, with hardly a hint of blue. While I do love the color, it isn't what I was expecting.

                                I bought 853 Abril - just gorgeous amethyst shade ! I am making crocheted shawl for my sister and I could not be happier with shine and drape that it is already showing in my work : ). This is the first time I am using this yarn and I was somewhat surprised with it's tendency to split, I guess that part is due to silk content. I am using very small hook size (2.00 mm), and that might be also contributing to finicky behavior of this yarn.
