I bought this to make a scarf and hat set for my niece. I thought it would be a nice cheaper alternative to Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca lace yarn, but maybe I'm spoiled from working with the silkpace because I do not like the alpaca lace at all. It is not as soft, and it kept splitting. I'm hoping I can trade with someone on Ravelry for something else as I now have 3 skeins left of a yarn I do not enjoy working with. The two stars are for the lack of knots and breaks in the yarn itself and the color being exactly what was expected. The color is lovely. Not a good yarn for me though.
This worked up so nicely in my project. The drape was so soft, the color was rich, and the yarn did not pill despite a pleasant soft fuzz to it. The skein was a bit hard to deal with while balling it up, and I highly recommend working with a buddy to get the task accomplished.
I wasn't sure what this yarn was going to look like when I ordered it, but I was not disappointed when I got it. It works up quickly, despite being lace yarn, and the slight halo adds some visual interest without being too fluffy. It has excellent drape as well. Will be ordering again!
I bought this yarn to pair with a Debbie Bliss Angel kidsilk so I could make subtle color changes over the course of a shawl. I am using it in a single strand, with the kidsilk on size 6 needles. I am knitting a shawl in stockinette with occasional rows of lace patterning. This yarn is knitting up beautifully. It is soft,light and warm. The color Lake Chelan is heathery and welcomes the kidsilk to create a sense of light play across the shawl. It is easy to tink if need be : and just looks inviting and lovely.
