        I made a loose fit top with each one strand of Pirouette and Regia Lace.(2 balls regia lace, 5.5 balls Pirouette, 4mm knitting needles, size medium top) The fabric has elegant drape with subtle colour changing comes from Reia Lace. It is light, pleantly warm and at the same time not bulky at all. Most of all the fabric is soft enough next to my skin.(like everybode else, I can not stand the itchiness of some mohairs)
        One thing bothered me is that Pirouettet was easily entangled itself.(It was manageabe, though)

        I bought several different brands of lace weight mohair yarns, and this is my least favorite of them all. The colors I have are great, and true to the colors online. However, the yarn has a bit of a course feel, and it irritates my hands if I work with it for too long (undoubtably exacerbated by my dry skin). It's okay for the price, but from now on I will be paying a couple of dollars more per ball to get a higher quality yarn.

                I found knitting with Piroutte like knitting with any other mohair, but it is such a better value - non knitters who receive your hand knit gift will not know the difference! Piroutte offers different color choices.

                    I bought this to finish out a hood, and while it was a difficult colour than I needed, it was still beautiful. It was, however, a lot thinner than I thought it was going to be. For some odd reason I thought it would be "fuzzier" than it was.

                          I used this yarn to crochet a pixie hat using a vintage star pattern. The yarn worked-up smoothly and looked great in the pattern. The hat is soft, thick enough to protect baby-ears, and a very pretty pink!

                          Like Rowan's kidsilk haze, it is very thin. I ended up ordering same amount again, to use the yarn doubled for a simple lace shrug. The end result is beautiful, the mohair gave some real body to the work after doubled the yarn. The bamboo replaced the silk has the same sheen and strength, a good alternative to kidsilk haze with better pricing.

                                  SOO much more affordable than other brands, but can't tell the difference. Very strong for tiny threads. Best to use multiple strands unless you desire very airy look

                                      I make props for newborn photographers and this yarn is real value for money. I absolutely love silk/mohair but it is rather expensive for what I do, so this yarn fits perfectly.

                                          I crocheted a lacy sweater with a cowl neck with this yarn. the finished product was light and airy and delighted its recipient. I expected the mohair to make the yarn difficult to work with as past experience with fuzzy yarns has never been good, but I had no problems with that. It was a little more difficult than usual to pull out mistakes. After the first sweater I came back and bought more of this yarn for other projects. I really enjoyed working with it and the results were great
