This yarn is used for my little dolls I design. I crochet a little head of hair for them and this yarn has just enough fuzz and then it has an added element of surprise with the tinsel. I love the color and the gold tinsel makes it look vintage.
I will certainly buy this yarn again in other colors as well!

Only good use for this yarn is scrubbing your pots and pans. It is UNBELIEVEABLY course. The metallic thread is overdone and looks like Christmas tinsel. There is so much of it (I knitted a lace scarf) that it mutes out the color of the yarn. Try S. Charles Collezione Luna! The best bang for your buck...a truly exquisite yarn.

rare sparkly yarn

Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

I made a sparkly, shimmery acrylic mohair-type yarn stole for evening wear that is a show-stopper. Women ask me where to buy one and then if I will make one for them. The yarn seems to no longer exist except as cheap fakey-looking knock-offs, so I am trying this yard to see if it will produce a similarly elegant, sumptuous, soft shawl. The olive color with gold patches is different from the all over soft shimmer of the other, but quite beautiful in the skein. I can't tell you yet about the knitting experience, as I am finishing up holiday gifts at the moment, but I am excited to start the project as soon as possible.

    Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

    I have a lace scarf half made, and this yarn is really nice to knit. It works easily, and unknits just as easily when I make a lace error!
    Has more body than you would expect for such a fragile looking yarn, and fabric looks good, not flimsy.

    Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

    Yarn is easy to knit but difficult to unravel because of the fluffy structure. It little itchy, I wouldn't recommend to use it for scarves or hats, maybe only for decorative parts of it. I made cape from this yarn. It's absolutely gorgeous! And warm. I get a lot of compliments on it.

            Yarn at first appears stiff but softens up beautifully when washes. Glitter is nice accent without overpowering. Makes up into a lovely shawl.

                  Love Louisa harding yarn! The sparkles that weave themselves through the project are neat to watch. Don't know how it feels on the skin due to not finishing my project however I have a feeling the sparkle bits might be scratchy on the skin.

                    I am making an evening cape and matching top and this yarn is perfect, the colour is rich and the gold accent makes it look luxurious. The metallic yarn takes away from the softness somewhat but not enough to make the sweater uncomfortable.
