Picked up a cone of this yarn while visiting Webs this Spring with the intent of using it as a "Tag along" yarn (to be used with another yarn whose color I disliked).

While it would make a nice "tag-along", I did not use as intended. Instead, made a lovely lace shawl with it! It turned out fantastic, and has received many compliments! The Color "Greyed Teal" was beautiful, yarn was very soft and had a wonderful silken sheen.

Would definitely purchase again.

The yarn itself is fine, no problems. But beware if a color is backordered! I was initially told that it would be between two and three weeks for my backorder to arrive. After not receiving it, I contacted them again and was told no, it could be another one to two months for it to show up as the yarn is manufactured for them by a mill outside of the country. Hugely disappointing as I ordered many different colors for several projects and now I am waiting for the backorder in order to complete these projects.

                      I weave with both the solid and variegated colors of this yarn. The combinations of colors and weaves are endless. Expect a somewhat muted effect when warping with the variegated using a solid weft. The wet finished product is silky and so soft. I love the shawls I have made from this yarn.

                          I've used this in many colors for scarves and shawls. The colors are gorgeous, deep and rich and the cloth shimmers. The hand is so silky. This weaves up nicely combined with silk in eithe warp or weft.
