I love Poems Chunky and Poems Puzzle, and I assumed I'd love this, too. It's super soft, and the colors are a bit like Noro Silk Garden. I normally love roving-type yarns rather than plied yarns, but not this time. Poems Silky frequently gets very, very thin (way too tightly twisted) and then very bulky (almost completely untwisted). That would be fine if it was a thick/thin yarn, but it's not. There are lots of very fuzzy spots as you are knitting that you've got to remove, hopefully without pulling the yarn apart completely. Also, I came to many spots where the yarn was just broken then tied in knots. This is the first time I've ever said this, but I won't ever use this yarn again.

      Comments about 10.00 Poems Silk:

      I got 'Ribbon Reef' #737 as the contrasting color for an Inspira cowl (pattern free on Ravelry). The pic looks like earthy coral, terra cotta, lavender and rose. In reality it is blasting bright fuchsia to bright orange and lavender. I'm using it, but it is tragically clown-bright. If you're seeking very vivid colors, it's great; unfortunately, I was not.

            I love the colors and the softness of this yarn. The thickness has varied in a few places at color changes, but goes right back to normal. I would definitely recommend this one!

            Comments about 10.00 Poems Silk:

            I loved knitting with this yarn. I made a vest for my girlfriend and she loved the color, the feel, the texture. It's a wonderful blend of wool and silk. Just right. The color gradation is beautifully done and works into lovely patterns depending on what you're knitting. I've made fingerless mitts with it also and they are heaven to wear. I highly recommend this yarn for any project you might be considering; clothes, mitts, scarfs, hats, anything!

            A Cautionary Tale

            By Beth

            from Coastal Oregon

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

            • Very Nice Color Blending

            Cons

            • Difficult To Add Beading

            Best Uses

              Comments about 10.00 Poems Silk:

              This product has a lovely consistency in its color variation blending. However, there was a lot of random, non-specific fiber spun into the yarn: fibers which I had to pick out as I went along. I used a crocheted pattern of circles which made up beautifully and really showed up the color variations well (rather than showing as stripes).

                I had never used this yarn before, but decided to give it a try. One skein made a wonderful scarf and I plan to purchase more over the next few months to make scarves for Christmas gifts.
