I made the Tucked Pullover sweater designed by Quenna Lee and published in Knit Wear (fall/winter2013) with Coffee Bean Brown Silky Wool. It was really fun to work with and I absolutely love my finished sweater. It's lightweight but nice and warm and it layers well over blouses and tops. I was afraid I didn't have enough yarn to make the sleeves as long as I wanted, but found it easy to stretch them out during blocking. I was so impressed that I bought more in two different colors to make more sweaters. Can't wait to get started on them.

I purchased a ball of this at my LYS to swatch before ordering. Glad I did. It's classified as a DK, and it looks like about a DK -- until you knit it up. It's very lightweight, with a loose twist, so it knits up more as a fingering. This yarn would be ideal for a floaty, lacy scarf, but I wouldn't recommend it for a cozy sweater. That said, it's pretty, has a good hand, and the texture is just the teeniest bit pebbly. It knits up very evenly.

        I have used this yarn previously and like the slightly "crunchy" texture. It suits the casual sweater I am knitting.

            This yarn is a stable in my household especially for woven gifts each year at Christmas. It weaves wonderfully on both a rigid heddle or floor loom. I can achieve different textures depending on which I use and how hard/soft I beat. After weaving, it fulls beautifully with just a short, typical spin in the dryer. I use a 10-dent reed. It turns out so soft after that process, wonderful worn next to the skin. It comes in a wide range of colors so you can satisfy the desires of each recipient. I have to buy tons of this each year to make the requested gifts.

                Comments about 9.95 Silky Wool:

                Having never tried SilkyWool before, I wanted it for a springtime sweater, which I am just now finishing up (a "Woodfords'). Springtime can pose problems for me because April and May can sound like they should be warm, but I am often cold. I want to look like spring but not shiver. I think Silky Wool achieves this in that it is lightweight yet warm but does not look or feel wintery.

                Although it's not cashmere in feel, and even a touch crunchy, it has been comfortable to knit with. Wet-blocking has made it softer and smoother -- which I like -- but has also made it grow even more than I expected -- which I don't like. Next time I use it, I will steam-block in order to smooth and soften the fabric with less growing.
