Incredibly soft but NOT DK weight
This is the softest yarn I've ever worked with. But it's not a DK weight, as advertised. I would describe it as light fingering weight, suited to #3 or #2 needle. Tends to split easily. But makes a beautiful shawl or scarf.

So beautful, and yet...
from Tucson, AZ
I first encountered this yarn at my LYS, and fell in love with it immediately. Didn't buy right away, but left such an impression on me it wasn't long before I bought myself a few balls.
Beautiful color, lovely sheen, so soft and squishy. And yes, it is NOT DK weight... more like fingering (light, even). I can't tell you about drape because I have yet to find a pattern that I can work with this yarn. While it is a beautiful yarn, I don't know if it's just me or what, but I have the hardest time with it. Very splitty and just doesn't handle well. I keep finding patterns, try the Folio, only to frog it not many rows in. Even when using #3 or #4 needles...
As a ball, it is beautiful yarn. But what good is the yarn if I can't make it into something?

A little on the thin side, but beautiful
from Santa Rosa, CA
The color of this yarn is breathtaking! I can only fault it for being thin. A #3 needle may be more suitable...but whatever the case I'm buying more.
