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.

        Stranded with another lace weight yarn superior makes a gorgeous lacy cardigan which is very very soft, has a slight halo, and is a delight to wear. I am using it for the 4th time. The range of available colors is also amazing. I think it is worth every penny!

          Love to use this yarn for combining with other yarn weights to achieve the most luscious, dreamy fabric ever. I used for a sweater combining it with a fingering weight .

              This yarn was the first time I've ever used such a fine, light-weight product, It was somewhat challenging to get accustomed to, but I absolutely love the soft feel of it. I'm using it with another fine textured yarn to make a cowl. I've been to your store & love your wonderful selection of all knitting products. You always seem to have everything I need & ship promptly! Thank you.

                This is easy to knit and has good stitch definition. It is not quite as soft as it used to be, however, which is a shame. Definitely use bamboo needles. You can easily make a cowl out of one skein. I do think Webs need to re-do their color swatches on their site for this yarn as they are not even close, even allowing for monitor differences. I ordered royal blue and it much lighter lighter than shown.

                  I have used this yarn previously to reconstruct a favorite hat for a friend of mine - I loved the yarn so much that I decided to use it to make a sweater from a Rowan pattern (with modifications). The pattern called for Kidsilk Haze Trio on size 8 and 9 needles so I made several swatches to get approximately the same gauge via quadrupling the yarn. So far I am very happy with the feel and look of the yarn for this particular pattern. I am sure it also would be wonderful for other garments/accessories and would be especially terrific for anyone who has sensitive skin.

                    This is my new favorite yarn. It knits up in a cloud like texture. I'm using it double stranded on U.S. 8's to knit a simple stockinette poncho. I'm just copying something similar I saw on a woman this spring. It's knitting up pretty fast and I can't wait to wear it. My daughters want me to make something for them with this yarn, too!

                        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.
