        This yarn works up beautifully for scarves and shawls. The colors didn't pool and the yarn was lovely to work with.

          Beautiful soft yarn which easily pills. I love the colors. I wouldn't use it for anything that gets hard use such as gloves or socks.

                Making my first pair of socks. Really looking forward to wearing them once it gets cold again.

                  I ordered this in the "Shadows" colorway which turns out to be lovely blues and greens. There isn't as much color variation as I expected from the web picture, though.

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk Paints:

                    Yes, it is possible to split stitches as other reviewers have stated, but the feel of this yarn while knitting and then wearing is worth being just a tiny bit more careful. After all, if it were too easy, it would be in mass-produced things and then what's the point?

                      I bought a skein to knit a scarf for my son. He is very pleased with the colors, not to mention the warmth and softness.

                        I like Heritage Paints (with nylon instead of silk), this feels a teeny bit softer. Made socks and just gave them as gifts, so cannot comment on wear yet.
