Gorgeous, but...

This is gorgeous yarn and I have used it now for three projects. The red colorway bleeds color quite badly, the other colors I purchased are very pastel and don't run noticeably.

      I have love this yarn for years - the color combinations are gorgeous, the spin is very uniform with no rough spots or knots, and the yarn behaves well after finishing and blocking.

                Gorgeous! Soft! A little splitty, but manageable.

                I'm using this to make my first Niebling!!! So excited. The yarn is lovely, so soft and with a slight halo - I think this will be an airy shawl that still holds some warmth. It's a little splitty if I'm not careful with the points on my size 1 Addi turbos, but not that hard to navigate; I'm managing centered double decreases without an issue.

                  I made a scarf with this, I paired it with a sock yarn and it is beautiful. I gifted it and forgot to take a picture.

                    Bought this yarn for weaving but couldn't wait and started knitting. If you are addicted to lace yarns (I certainly am), you will love this yarn. Slightly slippery to knit, thus the recommendation for bamboo needles. Knits up to make gorgeous fabric!!
