    Color was different than appeared

    Color was different than appeared on comuter and I do not like it. Tried to return but WEBS would not accept return. Will not use yarn.

      I combined the Tonos with the Handpaint Pima Silk. Perfect! The colors went well together. The feel was flawless. It made into a lovely summer shawl.

        This yarn knits up into beautiful sweaters. It is so soft. All soft yarn pills more than scratchy yarn, I have a sweater shaver. I only like soft yarn
        next to my skin.

            Not as tonal as I would have imagined but a very pretty color. This yarn is super soft. I am knitting a dress for my nephew's baby and the cotton/silk combo it great for the summer.
            Would definitely purchase this yarn again.

              I knit a summer shell out of this yarn. It held up quite well even though I ripped out the project completely and started from scratch. Lovely, soft yarn with a great drape.

                This yarn is wonderfully soft. It has nice body and drape. I had trouble keeping my guage even. Every stitch will show (good or bad).

                Lovely mix of color adds life to the knitted fabric.

                  I used this yarn to create a great lace scarf - I'm still working on it right now, but it's going to be gorgeous when it's finished. I really like the dye pattern of the yarn - the tonal gradients are gorgeous.

                    I can't wear wool, so this is a lovely substitute. The yarn has a wonderful hand and the stitch definition is excellent. I love the tone-on-tone colours, especially the deep green that I bought.
