    The service from Webs is great, you are not waiting long from the time you are place your order to the time that you are receive your yarn. I have never had to wait long for my order to arrive. It is a special treat, seeing that Webs label.

                I ordered this in the "Shadows" colorway which turns out to be lovely blues and greens. There isn't as much color variation as I expected from the web picture, though.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk Paints:

                  Yes, it is possible to split stitches as other reviewers have stated, but the feel of this yarn while knitting and then wearing is worth being just a tiny bit more careful. After all, if it were too easy, it would be in mass-produced things and then what's the point?

                    I bought a skein to knit a scarf for my son. He is very pleased with the colors, not to mention the warmth and softness.

                      I like Heritage Paints (with nylon instead of silk), this feels a teeny bit softer. Made socks and just gave them as gifts, so cannot comment on wear yet.
