            I bought 6 skeins so I could make a scarf for my mom and myself. Now that i
            Can touch them, they don't feel particularly special. Was tempted to return some of the skeins. I've rolled a couple of the skeins into balls. Very soft, doesn't seem to shed. No halo effect.

                    One skein of this luxury yarn used as weft will make two 70 scarves (infinity, so don't need fringe). The finished product, with Jaggerspun Zephyr warp, was lovely and soft.

                      I can't wrap my head around this mink fiber been spun into knitting yarn, so I had to try. Yes it knits well, as a light fingering or heavy lace weight. It is preciously a luxury, so this time it is for me, after knitted so much for other people. It deserves to be something very special, to be worn gently against the skin. Knitting is getting better by the ages...

                        Comments about Lotus Yarns Mimi:

                        The yarn is very light and soft, and a single yarn goes a long way. I had planned a sport weight top project, but had to rearrange quite a bit because this yarn is much thinner than that. It was actually thinner than the hand maiden fingering yarn I just used earlier. The knitted top is so wonderful to wear - doesn't shed too much as a fur yarn, very light, lace pattern shows up well, and soft to the neck.

                        I bought 3 skeins, 2 were perfect, but the last one had 3 knots.

                        Comments about Lotus Yarns Mimi:

                        I just completed a cowl for a friend's upcoming 90th birthday on US size 6 needles using this yarn doubled, because the pattern I chose required thicker yarn than this product turned out to be. I knit it in red, and the blocking produced very little bleeding. The finished product stayed true to knitted size.

                        Amazingly soft to knit, so now returning to my beloved "lowly" wools and alpacas feel less pleasant in my hand, by comparison. Still, it's fun to use, and I'll definitely knit more, perhaps a lace scarf in single strand next.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Prompt delivery, arrived in great condition, and my order volume with Webs 25% discount made the price more palatable. Another great Webs experience!

                              I bought the yarn thinking I would knit the "Breckon" sweater pattern with it, since the pattern called for sport weight yarn. That didn't work - this yarn is more like fingering yarn. However, the yarn color was the most beautiful dark green and the touch and feel were amazing - I will find a pattern to marry to this beautiful yarn. Pure luxury.

                                The color is rich, deep and even . Any application for fingering weight cashmere would be appropriate for this yarn. Delivery was quick and easy. I will definitely order more.
