    This is a lovely yarn, very soft and yet very warm. I used it to make a bolero with quite a loose gauge but it is still warm and I get comments and compliments when I wear it :) The sheen makes it more sophisticated as well.

    Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

    I got this to make a cardigan. Seeing as it is 25% silk, I expected something a little more... silky. It's about the same texture as most plain low-end wool, fairly coarse. The color is all right but it's not what I was looking for. It's quite a heavy DK, which is ok. It makes a pretty good hat or scarf, which is what I've ended up going with, but don't get it if you're looking for something silky.

      Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

      Eden Silk was the suggested yarn for prayer shawl I wanted to crochet for our church Christmas Sale;
      first - the yarn was not the same shade of green as portrayed in the picture; it was a darker olive green (shade was called: Vine);
      second - this is not a soft yarn as the description of it suggests;
      it is rather coarse, but the shape/drape of the shawl is holding up nicely, so I can see why this yarn used;
      finally, it is hard to crochet with - it does not flow easily thru my fingers.
      I would not use this yarn again !

        Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

        Gauge swatch was easy to do. I like that the yarn is sufficiently firmly spun to make it easy to handle.
        Color is a bit darker than what showed on the web site, but still a lovely red color for the cardi I am planning to make.

          Comments about Universal Yarn Eden Silk:

          I'm always so sorry when I discover a beautiful yarn that is being discontinued. Eden Silk is wonderful to work with--the colors are vibrant and it is very soft. There is good stitch definition. I made a warm and lovely shawl with it and plan to do some others. As with any yarn with silk, there is a chance of snagging, but I didn't find that happened much with this one.

                  Ok yarn for the price. Every few yards there is silk fuzz not properly spun in and over all the yarn feels like cheap acrylic.

                    After purchasing lovely merino yarns so many times in the past that were soft, shiny, and have lovely drape, I expected a merino silk blend to be all that and more! Instead it feels like cheap wool at best, acrylic at worst. Not a happy customer! Even after blocking my swatch was still stiff and scratchy.

                      I made a long cardigan (Old Town from Sunday Knits) and it turned out beautiful. The are some irregularities in the yarn, but for me it just added a sense of "homemade and I'm not perfect" and didn't bother me a bit. I have not washed it yet.
                      I will certainly use this again.

                        I made a sweater for my teenage daughter. She loves it, it is very soft yarn, and knit up quickly. The dye did run when I washed the sweater to block it.
