      Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

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

          Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

          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.

            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.

              Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

              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.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Webs always has good service and deliver.

                Bought it to make a wrap for my mom. I used Lace pattern from vogue lace knitting book. Truly an easy yarn to work and beautiful yarn. I am eying the blue color of same kind for future knitting.

                Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

                I love how the gold works in with the blue yarn color and the pattern that it brings to the scarf that I knitted with it. The gold was weaved in at a perfect pattern to make the scarf looks very special and fancy. This is going to make a nice Christmas gift. Makes a normal scarf a little more classy

                  • Doll hair

                  Comments about Louisa Harding Simonetta:

                  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!
