Comments about 4.89 Brimfield:

This yarn is so soft and beautiful, and the stitch definition is as superb as the drape. The only tiny issue is that it has lots and lots of very fine plies, and they can get snagged or split if you're not paying attention. Overall this is a very minor issue, and the pros definitely are worth it!

Comments about 4.89 Brimfield:

I really love this Yarn.... Knits up absolutely beautifully. Super soft. Luxurious. Being my first time with this yarn, I am thrilled with it although for the project I used it with, I am just a little concerned with the sheen from the silk and super softness that may cause fuzzing later with wear. The sheen, shine from the silk is not the best way to display cable work but, with that said, it is still coming out BEAUTIFULLY!
The yarn does not get super fuzzy right away, like if you have to pull out, but there is some fuzzing going on from the start of the cardigan, that may worry me with wear. The yarn tends to split threads when correcting a stitch or two, this yarn requires a little more attention to avoid splitting into stitches, but nothing so significant that I couldn't work with. I really love this yarn.

    This yarn is better than chocolate!

    By PuffyGriffinclaw

    Pros

    • Great hand, great stitch definition, soooo soft

    Cons

    • I wish it came in every color of the rainbow!

    Best Uses

    • Scarf, sweater, hat, shawl

    Comments about 4.89 Brimfield:

    I bought this to make a gift scarf and the yarn totally swept me off my feet. Knitting with it feels like a guilty pleasure. I can't wait to use it in a sweater, as the silk would keep it lightweight yet warm. Beautiful stitch definition, would look fabulous in cables.

        Comments about 4.89 Brimfield:

        I made a lovely sweater in the now discontinued color Steel. It is warm and not at all itchy BUT I have worn it only a few times and it is pilling terribly. It is a real disappointment to but the time and effort into a garment and then to have it look so worn after only a few wearings.

        Bought this for a mystery knit along with lots of cables. The gauge swatch knitted beautifully. It's so soft and very good stitch definition. Will be ordering lots more in the future.

        Comments about 4.89 Brimfield:

        I wanted to execute a specific glove pattern and thought this yarn would be suitable; very pleased with the yarn feel, weight, and stitch definition. The only thing I wish is that this blend offered some brighter colors, such as magenta, mango, turquoise, and lime.

            I purchased this yarn at Stitches West 2015 for a Cowl. I just started to use it and this yarn is so wonderful. The sititches are so very even and the yarn is wonderful on my hands.
