This yarn is used for my little dolls I design. I crochet a little head of hair for them and this yarn has just enough fuzz and then it has an added element of surprise with the tinsel. I love the color and the gold tinsel makes it look vintage.
I will certainly buy this yarn again in other colors as well!

Yarn is easy to knit but difficult to unravel because of the fluffy structure. It little itchy, I wouldn't recommend to use it for scarves or hats, maybe only for decorative parts of it. I made cape from this yarn. It's absolutely gorgeous! And warm. I get a lot of compliments on it.

          I use this to combine w/other yarns and fringe for my ponchos. the metallic accent could possibly be scratchy for something worn next to the skin. It is very light weight so works well to combine w/another yarn. It adds glitz to your project. Very good quality.

              Service is always good at this site. This purchase was a mistake. It has all the elements of a yarn that does not please me. It is too coarse and too fine. The tinsel is just tinsel and looks like what it is. Textures mean a great deal to me.

                  Comments about 7.75 Simonetta:

                  I bought the Simonetta pattern book to make a sweater out of this yarn. I'm using the purple mulberry color and it's such a pretty color. Perhaps a little too much gold flecks for my taste, but overall, the effect is very lovely. It knits up quickly using size 8 needles. It catches/snags on my skin unless I moisturize my dry hands. I think the sweater will be really nice, though. And I love Louisa Harding yarns and patterns!

                  Comments about 7.75 Simonetta:

                  I made a sparkly, shimmery acrylic mohair-type yarn stole for evening wear that is a show-stopper. Women ask me where to buy one and then if I will make one for them. The yarn seems to no longer exist except as cheap fakey-looking knock-offs, so I am trying this yard to see if it will produce a similarly elegant, sumptuous, soft shawl. The olive color with gold patches is different from the all over soft shimmer of the other, but quite beautiful in the skein. I can't tell you yet about the knitting experience, as I am finishing up holiday gifts at the moment, but I am excited to start the project as soon as possible.

                    I have a lace scarf half made, and this yarn is really nice to knit. It works easily, and unknits just as easily when I make a lace error!
                    Has more body than you would expect for such a fragile looking yarn, and fabric looks good, not flimsy.
