      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.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Pirouette:

      This yarn was easy to work with. I was hesitant at first, but it is working out well with sweater I am making. I received a gift certificate form Christmas. A little more pricey for my budget, but it was worth it.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Pirouette:

      I'm making a light, lacy wrap cardigan. It looks lovely, but the yarn has snagged several times as I knit, so I end up with very thin yarn in places, so thin it has broken off a couple times.

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

                    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Pirouette:

                    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.
