          Comments about Kraemer Sterling Silk & Silver:

          I used this yarn to make a somewhat lacy scarf for a niece who is an attorney. She wears a lot of dark suits, and she has black hair. She loves the red because it looks good with everything she wears and she says it always starts a conversation. She gets compliments every time she wears it. It is VERY easy to work with. I expected the yarn to be a bit harsh with the silver thread, but it is amazingly soft and I had no snagging. No complaints on this one!

            Good yarn for the pattern I used which knit TBL and had cables all over. The pattern was a bit fiddly and I had to rip out several times. The yarn held its shape and did not fray even after a year of dragging it all over the world!

                Comments about Kraemer Sterling Silk & Silver:

                I made a gift shrug with this yarn for someone who likes a little glitter. I really liked the glistening thread running through the yarn, and appreciated that it wasn't so prominent that the resulting garment would look silly when worn with casual outfits. I would definitely recommend this yarn for projects requiring subtle glitter The only reason I've rated it four stars vs. five is that, aside from the glitter, it is pretty "standard", one of many good yarns I've used but not a standout favorite.

                                I bought a skein of this yarn on a whim to use for a cape-style shawl for my sister. It is a complete pleasure to work with! It feel soft, glides over the needles so easily, and beautiful!
                                I love the silver threads that are shot throughout the yarn. They are very, very fine, yet glimmer easily in the light. I'll certainly purchase more!!
