I'm using this for a moebius shawl. The project has been tossed around for a couple of years. The yarn felts with work (it's about 1/2 silk) so I can do spit-joins but it hasn't compacted while I've made it wait.

The pattern is a garter stitch with simple lace at intervals (from a Cat Bordhi pattern). Although a single, it shows the stitches well. I find it easy to knit (I'm using a size 7 Addi Turbo Lace needle). The yarn does not have a tendency to split; it flows easily through my fingers and around the needles. I like the way its multi colors display; there is no striping (an effect I didn't want), and the "pooling" is small - maybe a two-row "pool" (I like pooling, but only on the right project and this isn't it).

I fully intend to work with it again. I think a new knitter could use it, as I don't find it takes any particular consideration.

The only "con" (and I don't think of it that way) is that I don't think I'd use it for a felting project - but there are plenty of yarns to use for felting and, given the next-to-skin softness of this yarn, I would rather use it for shawls, hats, scarves, and perhaps sweaters.

I bought 5 skeins. 3 were a tangled mess. I had to throw one of them out. The other 2 took between 1-2 hours to untangle. When I get my wool I just want to knit. A shame because the wool itself is beautiful - it feels more silky then wooly. Good for children, or adults, who don't like itchy wool.

    I purchased this initially for the newest Stephen West knit-a-long shawl. Simply superb and showed the pattern so beautifully. My leftovers I am using to make a cowl.

        I used this to knit one of the first sweaters I ever made in color Arco Iris. It turned out so much warmer and softer than I anticipated. Easy to knit with. There is quite a bit of difference between dye lots though, so get plenty.

            Okay, I love this yarn. I ordered two skeins because I am in the process of knitting a scarf for my boyfriend. The only problem I have is that it is so small. I thought it would be a lot bigger and I am disappointed about that. I am planning on ordering 3 more skeins...sigh.

            Bought this to make a cowl as a gift. Needed 2 skeins so I had to knit with both - switched on every row to keep color consistency throughout garment. With that in mind - it's a beautiful yarn! Love the fibers and I do love the color variations throughout.
