Working with this yarn was a real pleasure! I made the Gone For The Weekend Tee and it not only worked up quickly but it was so easy to work with. The only complaint I had was a couple of the little skeins tangled badly when winding, but this could be down to user error. Love it and will buy more to make another Tee!

This yarn feels wonderful, knits easily, has a wonderful sheen and drape. Entertaining to knit with because of the metallic look with no scratch. It looks best where the sheen catches light. I've tried various textures, incl. lace, gathers and cables, and they all do it justice. Not as heavy as cotton. Hand washing didn't change size much, but allowed blocking.

Not my favorite yarn. I bought this to complete a project. It is pretty, but I don't care for the feel or working with it.

Love the sheen on this yarn. Haven't washed the garment yet so I don't know how long it will retain that sheen.

I needed a sweater for a party and this yarn has enough shimmer in it to fill the bill. I made two sweaters, the first had long sleeves, and I knitted to the guage recommended, however I felt the sweater was much too heavy and might have a tendency to grow, so I made another with short sleeves. It is beautiful and perfect for what I wanted it for. However I would not buy this yarn again, it has a heavy metal feel to it..
