          Comments about <em>Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk</em>:

          I used this for a hat (Komi Cap). It is wonderfully soft, and the colorwork stitches come out crisp and clear. It is a fairly fine fingering weight--size 0 or 1 needles worked well for me. I wish they offered more colors! The navy is a little dull, but the even, steady tone of it makes it good for this geometric colorwork pattern.

                  If you like Heritage, you'll love Heritage Silk! My new go-to yarn. Made a big shawl, planning a lightweight sweater next. Good value for the money.

                      I used Heritage Silk by Cascade for two projects; mathcing gloves and cowl. The sock weight Heritage yarn worked beutifully to create a lace design on the back side of the gloves. I then chose to use it double-stranded to create a matching cowl that had a variety of patterns throughout. This yarn has sheen, bounce and great stitch definintion.

                        I really liked this yarn! I used it to knit a shawl, and was really pleased with the end result. Fabric was soft and had very nice drape. Was easy to tink (not that I would ever need to do that).

                          Love the deep rich color! Knitting socks for a gift. I have found that the yarn is pilling even before the socks are off the needles, so I'm not sure how they will wear long term. But I will definitely use this again, it's been a pleasure to knit with otherwise.
