I made a blanket with this yarn -- which was an expensive proposition, but turned out beautifully. This yarn is gorgeous, with beautiful colours and a nice smooth finish. Very soft and springy. I was worried the vibrant colours might bleed, but they didn't -- at least when I soaked my blanket squares in wool wash and cold water to block them. Highly recommend.

I was knitting a hat in the dark charcoal color (#07102 Lot #2983) and the yarn started turning my fingers black.
The yarn feels soft in the ball, but begins to feel coarse after knitted.
Not at all happy with this yarn.

          Comments about SMC Select Silk Wool:

          Lovely sheen,soft & squishy. There was one knot in every ball - several metres from the outside end. The chained construction means you can't splice this yarn, so that was a bit of a pain. But the yardage is good - 120 metres/133 yards (I think)- so I guess one knot per ball isn't too bad.

              I am using this for a vest pattern I found online. It is knit in garter from side to side and the top folds over to create a large collar. It's done in two colors- a kind of color block effect. This yarn has excellent body and nice stitch definition. I know it is silk and wool, but it reminds me a bit of acrylic in the way it feels and the slight sheen. I hope that goes away after it is blocked/ washed. The colors are beautiful and it is easy to work with.

                This was my second purchase of this yarn. I bought it the first time as it was the recommended yarn on a sweater I saw in a popular knitting magazine. I loved working with it so much that I designed this sweater up myself so I could use this same yarn. It knits up so well, it is easy to fix a mistake or dropped stitch or remove rows if need be. It is soft and comfortable to wear. I plan on making another one up once I finish this second one. I highly recommend this yarn.

                  I am half way done with a short cable cardigan. This yarn is so easy to work with. I plan to get more in other colors for similar projects. I mainly knit tiny doll sweaters but fell in love with the sweater on the cover of the recent "Vogue Knitting" magazine and it recommended this yarn. I will definitely be buying more.
