        Comments about Sublime Baby Silk & Bamboo DK:

        I loved working with this yarn. I would recommend making a test gauge swatch and blocking it. I didn't and when I hand-washed it it stretched more than I thought it would. Lesson learned. I had to undo part of it to make it shorter as the scarfette was supposed to fit around the neck. It came out beautiful and soft.

        Sublime made a beautiful baby blanket

          Comments about Sublime Baby Silk & Bamboo DK:

          I used this product before for a sweater and I found it pilled a lot and didn't keep it's shape well- it hung a bit like a rag. This time I bought it specifically for those qualities. I wanted to make a super soft drappy blanket for my first grand baby. The bamboo made it more hypo allergenic and gave it a beautiful sheen and the cashmere was like lying in a pile of goose down. It is a great yarn for the right project-but not for a project that need a bit of stability and shaping.

          Service and delivery comments:

          As always-Webs exceeded my expectations- the yarn arrived across the boarder within 2 weeks of ordering. That said- I had to pay $22 duty when it arrived. It seems this is pretty random- i find stuff gets caught and dinged about every 6-7 orders. I don't know how to fix this but- in general parcels with a value of less then $50 generally get through ( probably because $50 is the amount you can bring back without staying two nights) but orders of less then $50 don't get the discount. Kind of a catch 22 for us Canadians.

            bought this yarn to make a shawl. It is a replacement for the one recommended in the pattern and it's working up beautifully.

            I am making a darling Sublime sweater. I have 2 of the colors which are lovely pale pastels (light blue & peach). The yarn is silky sleek and it is draping beautifully. The yarn does split easily so you have to be very careful - mistakes do show.
