      Comments about Artyarns Silk Mohair Glitter:

      I am making a lace scarf in a "feather and fan" pattern as a thank you for someone who made me a beaded necklace. She asked for something "blue and sparkly."

      The mohair component in this yarn makes it very soft - like petting a bunny. It's size zero gauge, so it looks very fragile, but the silk component in this yarn is stronger than it looks. The finished product will be as light as a cloud, snuggly, and very feminine.

      The only negative I can point to is that the metallic strand has a tendency to split or separate away from the main strand of the yarn. I have had to rip back when I have discovered loops of unattached silver metallic in the lace portions of my project.

      I liked this yarn well enough to buy another skein in the non-metallic version for myself.

        Comments about Artyarns Silk Mohair Glitter:

        I am using this yarn to make a lacey shawl for my daughter. Although very fine, it is stronger than it looks. I have had no trouble with the yarn separating. A minor problem is that it tends to fuzz up a little, sticking to itself and tangling. This is not a major problem if you're careful. The shawl is going to be beautiful!

          I knitted a cowl and a scarf both as gifts -- and both were right on the mark. The recipients were thrilled. It has a soft hand and is very comfortable next to the skin.

            With the warm weather I am concentrating on small luxury items to knit and wear or gift when the weather is cooler this fall. I am making it into a small scarf to decorate a blouse or sweater.

              I am knitting a scarf with this fabulous yarn. I can't think of a single thing that I dislike about it except for the fact that at some point I'm going to come to the end of the skein.

              Comments about Artyarns Silk Mohair Glitter:

              I've made a lace shawl for my step-daughter's wedding and a lacy dress for my new grand-daughter from this yarn. In both cases, I also incorporated some 6/0 seed beads. This yarn has an amazingly soft hand and drape when made up, and blocks very well. (Critical for lace.) Both garments turned out beautifully - if there were angels, and they wore clothes, this is what they'd make them out of!

              I'm looking for new projects to make with this yarn, it's so gorgeous...maybe an evening sweater to wear over a camisole? Yummy.

                    I love this yarn! It's a bit pricey for a large project, but if you want a stunning lacey scarf or one-of-a-kind shawl, this yarn is terrific. It works up nicely--be gentle with it and it will be good to you--and it adds a touch of glamour to projects.

                      Comments about Artyarns Silk Mohair Glitter:

                      I created a lovely lightweight scarf using #6 circular needles for a fine lace effect. The softly textured quality easily hides mistakes, but can make it challenging to "undo" stitches because they kind of knot together. Just do it gently. It is easy to work with to pickup stitches. I am especially enamored with the glitter strand - it rarely separates and creates a beautiful "starlight" effect, catching the light.
