    This is my favorite yarn. It's airy, yet warm; scrumptious in its softness. Touching this yarn was like petting my long-haired cat. I just wanted to stroke it. Obviously knitting with it was a complete joy. The colors are luminous. The colors on the screen matched the color on the ball surprisingly well. Only caveats - this is obviously not a hard wearing yarn. It's not appropriate for things like socks. Use it for delicate items like fine lace shawls or scarves. Also, it's expensive. In this case, though, you really do get what you pay for.

        I tried knitting it with my Addi turbo needles. I took me one hour to knit one row. then I added another lace yarn to it and used bamboo needles, which made it knit much easier. But then you loose some of the effect.

        Lovely yarn, for lace shawl border

            Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Superior:

            This was ordered to use as a border on an otherwise completed shawl of the same yarn, but my local shop had discontinued carrying it. This is a different dye lot - I wish we could specify lot # when ordering, in hopes of, if not matching, at least coming close - so the border will be quite a bit lighter than I had planned, but it will still be lovely, and now, unique.

              I am in the process of making a summer cowl - one that will drape over the shoulders a bit. I know it is going to be fabulous.

              Service and delivery comments:

              My delivery took a bit only because one of the yarns I ordered had different dyelots. I thought the customer service department was very thoughtful and careful to make sure I would be happy with my order. I greatly appreciated that.

                  I love this yarn. It's so soft, it's like knitting a summer breeze. It gives great stitch definition while being very soft looking. Even not yet blocked it looks lovely. If you knit lace, try this yarn. If not for yourself, then as a gift for someone you love. It's pricey, but well worth it.

                  I have made many scarves out of this yarn. You only need one or two skeins per scarf. Affordable cashmere scarf. Very light and fluffy.

                  My delivery was very late, three weeks. The product when it did arrive was in good condition. Customer service was fairly helpful.

                  I am a regular customer at Webs and have not had any problems in the past with orders. However today when the yarns arrived, I thought there was a mistake. Indeed the colors shown online are not close to what you are actually shipped. Other than the issue of shades, the yarn is absolutely wonderful.

                  If you're looking to score points with your gifts, this is the yarn for you. Even though they changed the blend a little, its still luxury with capitals. Where else can you get a chamere shawl for under $60 dollars that looks like you've spent $300 or more. It's delicate to work with but worth working with.
