I'm a Rowan Kidsilk Haze fanatic, love it, love the colors and the way it adds magic to patterns calling for two lightweight yarns, such as Churchmouse's Modern Wrapper. But KSH is pricey so I've been testing other options hoping to save $ without compromising results.
Compared to KSH: The core is a little stiffer. Biggest difference is the amount of mohair in the strand. KSH looks sparse in the strand but knits into a lush, luxurious fuzz. This looks even sparser and knits up thin on same size needles. (That explains more yards per ball.) It's not as lush an outcome, sort of a barely there halo. Might be great doubled, the way Kaffe Fassett doubles KSH of different colors to create a third shade in some patterns. But I'll only use this to compensate when I make the Mod. wrapper with heavier 2nd yarns, so it won't add bulk, or when using cashmere. It adds a touch of something nice, but it's not 'magic.'
In sum: This definitely has its uses but I prefer KSH or Debbie Bliss Angel, available here, too. THey are heavenly soft, lush and come in a mouthwatering spectrum of colors.
As with all mohairs, use pointy needles and frogging will land you in the 7th circle of hell.
Recommending this depends a great deal on the application intended.

Bought two shades of blue for a brioche scarf project. It is working up well, and looks terrific. Lots of nice comments from fellow-knitters, and it isn't even finished yet. Will definitely buy more color combinations for future projects.
