        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.

              When I ordered this product there was an added 15% discount offered. I ordered enough to
              receive the discount, but because the supplies were limited, some had been discontinued. However, I was not notified of this before I was billed, and as a result I lost the discount. I feel I should have been given the opportunity to be more to receive the discount.

              I am not used to working with thin yarn, my
              project is a shawl, I was hoping it would be
              a little thicker

                I am using this yarn to knit a shawl and am truly enjoy working with it. Although a thin strand it is easy to work with, light and soft in your hand, no splitting and even without the final block, holds my lace pattern well. The color is gray with brown and red undertones to give it some complex depth, no flat color here. Look forward to more projects with it in the future.

                          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.
