I bought this yarn in 3 colors: pearl grey, abalone, and sapphire. The first two knit up great. My hands turned blue quickly while knitting with sapphire. I would not recommend that color or any of their deeper colors because of that. I returned that color to WEBS.

The yarn is super squishy and soft but so are many others. I don't mind dyes bleeding a bit when washed but not while I am knitting. Until the company improves their dye process, I will buy other yarns.

Comments about Fibre Company Road to China Light:

I originally got this yarn in a shawl kit, and I very quickly fell in love with it! It does tend to shed, especially when you are working on it, but the practical upside to this is that it makes a really, really gorgeous halo! The finished product is soft, smooth, and beautiful! When I decided I wanted (needed) more, I was very delighted to find that the cost is very reasonable, and the colorways are absolutely gorgeous! This is one that I would definitely recommend to an intermediate or expert knitter. It would not be my first choice for beginners because it does split and shed, I would suggest something more tightly wound. And I would not use it for socks, because it seems like it would wear a hole very quickly if you wore in on your feet. But for a special shawl, sweater, or scarf, particularly one you want that stunning softness and subtle halo effect, this is a must buy yarn!!

    Comments about Fibre Company Road to China Light:

    I have used this sumptuous yarn in the past in a different color. The dying of the Amertine color is so subtle and all the different hues of the light grayish lilac colors really come out in the light and knitting. I used polished metal circular knitting needles, US #4, with great results. There is very little splitting, NO knots, and very nice stitch definition. This yarn has made a lovely set of fingerless mittens and cowl for a friend's birthday (used about 1 ⅔ skeins). I will definitely consider buying this yarn again!

      Comments about Fibre Company Road to China Light:

      This is the most delicious yarn I've found in quite awhile, and very versatile. I'm making a Melanie Berg shawl, Ashburn, with this yarn, and it knits like a dream. It's soft and drapes beautifully. Using US6 x 24 inches and the stitches are flawless. I would highly recommend this for a future shawl project!

        I am using this yarn to make a striped cowl so I bought several skeins. It is a lovely soft yarn and I am enjoying knitting with it. The colors are rich; my only complaint is that some of the color ends up on my fingers as I knit

                Comments about Fibre Company Road to China Light:

                This yarn was specifically identified for a knitting project/class. The colors were a little different from what I expected, based on the photographs, but still work well together for the pattern. Very soft, and very easy to work with. A few people in the class commented that it split a lot, but I didn't have any trouble with that. The ones who complained were throwers, rather than continental knitters, which may explain the splitting problem.

                        I needed just a bit more yarn to finish a project somImordered her. Quick delivery; exactly same lot, texture and color. Very very pleased. The yarn is decadently soft and delicate which makes working with it a bit of a challenge and one must pay good attention to cables, etc., however the attention lays off in a lovely item.
