          Comments about Shibui Silk Cloud:

          I used the gradient scarf pattern but decided I would have a hard time finishing in the seed stitch so I used a plain garter stitch. This yarn is so fabulous that it still looks wonderful. The colors worked so well together, even after ordering on the net and not being sure of the shades. This is pretty pricey yarn but well worth it.

            Everyone says their mohair yarns are soft but this one really is. The silk content adds a special sheen and the mohair brings a nice halo. Soft on my hands and face.

              This is my favorite mohair yarn. It gives very special look when added to any yarn. The quality is perfectt, soft and airy. I am sure I will use this yarn agai and again in my projects- as a solo yarn perfect for crochet or together with really warm yarn that misses the look. Excellent product!

                    Comments about Shibui Silk Cloud:

                    I knit my aunt a wide shawl with a log cabin type pattern, used lots of colors, she is also and artist and she loved it--the softness and the range of colors were her favorite part.
                    I have made many hats and caps with this yarn, it knits up wonderfully and looks great.
                    Easy to maintain the garments as well.
                    I highly recommend this yarn to anyone looking for a fine lace weight yarn with many color options to choose from.

                    The tones of the colors are beautiful. And unlike other lace weights, it has enough body to be fairly easy to knit.

                    Comments about Shibui Silk Cloud:

                    I tried a lace shawl from the victorian lace book and used the mulberry color. I wore it last night and it just feels so luxurious yet it's warm. This is a fabulous yarn. Only negative is that it is such a lightweight yarn it was challenging for a novice with "old" eyes. When I first started, I had to use a magnifying glass. After a while, I adapted. I am hoping they have more colors this year.

                      I recommend winding this gossamer yet strong yarn by hand; not one knot or flaw in any of the 3 skeins I ordered and it wound very easily without tangling or snagging. I ordered mulberry: the color tone and saturation was better than expected. I design and crochet that is closer to knitting in weight and drape ... this yarn is perfect for 'fairy-weight' creations!
