        Beautiful fiber!

        I used this in making a cowl. The colors are wonderful and the stitches crisp. I really loved the 'hand' of this yarn, as well. Soft, yet durable.

        i made a simple lace scarf with this and the finished product was pretty and the colors lovely, but knitting with it was a pain. The yarn is far too fragile -- especially if there is a chance you might have to frog even the least little bit to correct an error. I had to make 4 felt joins in one skein when the yarn unexpectedly broke on me because it got tugged on for several different reasons. And these tugs were nothing out of the ordinary and the same kind of tugs I would give any kind of yarn and expect it to hold up! I've never worked with a yarn this flimsy before and hope I don't have too again.

          I loved using this yarn. I combined it with a silk mohair which gave the yarn a beautiful halo. I made leg warmers for my daughter. So pretty. And warm.

                                        I chose the yarn because of the colors and gradation. But it breaks SO easily! I was making a small item and even then it was so frustrating I about gave up. I'm really glad I wasn't trying a sweater with it! I do NOT recommend this product. I have used Cascade yarns before and always been happy.

                                          I have never encountered a yarn which breaks so easily. This yarn is so fragile that it is completely useless, and it's fragility is surprising given that wool and silk are both strong fibers. The colors of the yarn are attractive, however it does not carry the lustre of silk. I would compare the experience of knitting with this yarn to what it might be like to knit with colorful dryer lint.

                                          There are so many beautiful yarns out there to choose from; this one might look attractive, but I would highly recommend that you continue looking and choose something else.
