I loved working with this yarn. It is a tactile delight. I made a long cardigan - the winter go-to, goes with everything, wear around the house cardigan.

My first issue, and this really isn't with the yarn, is that it was really hard to find a pattern I liked. I was looking for something that used lace, since I didn't want to overheat, and didn't want to look at yards of stockinette. I finally found a pattern that was sort of ok, but I modified it heavily.

It knitted up pretty quickly and I began wearing it. It feels wonderful! The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is that it pills a lot in the underarm, and this is just after a few weeks wear. I'm afraid that as I wear it more it will pill all over.

However, the beret I made with the leftovers has not pilled at all and is an absolute favorite - the pattern is the Montse beret, free on Revelry.

Since it so wants to pill, I bet it would felt beautifully.

Yarn is wonderfully soft, easy to knit' However there were many SHORT lengths of yarn that I had to tie together. I won't be using this yarn again. By the way I had 6 steins and this problem was a factor in each stein

Luckily I was knitting a scarf with large cables which hid the knots.
The yarn was not cheap and I am surprised because I have never had this problem with Debbie Bliss yarn.

    Comments about 6.49 Paloma:

    I bought this yarn to make a pink "cat" (politically correct term for the type of hat used in recent political marches) hat for friend. I only wish there was just a wee bit more yardage to make the hat a few rows taller. Other than that, the yarn was very easy to knit with and looks good made up.

            I am knitting a throw with this yarn using the slip stitch method and it is just gorgeous. The yarn flies through your fingers, knits fast with super loft. It is light yet very warm. I will be seeking other patterns for Paloma.
            So far no knots as end are spliced. Nice touch.
            No negatives so far.

                  Super soft. The French Navy has a stronger purple hue than expected but still beautiful.

                      I have not worked with the yarn yet, but it is soft and lovely. I plan to make a cabled cowl. I ordered the soft green, which is a bit more green than what the image shows online--which could be due to the computer screen or just the dye lot.
