Overall Heritage Silk Paints Rating: 4.7 out of 5 (4.7 based on 16 reviews)

Socks 1 out of 5 (1 out of 5)
Both pairs of socks that I knit with this yarn developed large holes in the soles within the first year of wear. Obviously not suitable for sock knitting.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this yarn 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I am a huge fan of wool/silk blends, and this is one of the best. Heritage silk not only comes in beautiful colors, it has fabulous drape and is fabulous to work with. I enjoyed working with it so much that I came back and purchased it in other colors and yarn weights.

Easy to knit! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I have made two of the Cascade Heritage Paints Sparkle cowls pattern free on the Cascade website. I had no problems with the yarn and the cowls were both beautiful. My youngest daughter begged for the first one I made so I had make another! Easy yarn to use and soft enough for necks!

Beautiful fiber and colorways at an economic price 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I have ordered Heritage Silk and Silk Paints in several colorways for making shawlettes and infinity scarves, and I have to say I am so pleased. The fiber has a beautiful, soft, feel, and the yarn has a very, very subtle sheen from the silk content. The colorways are really nice and especially in the paints line, are impressively nuanced and rich. This is a really lovely yarn for an economic price and its becoming a standby for me when I'm knitting gifts that I'm hoping will become treasured items, but that won't break my bank. I have also found that this line blocks really nicely---despite its silk content, it seems to still be pretty elastic and responds well to aggressive blocking.

Beautiful, soft yarn. Olive green with warm brown and tan tones. Easy to work with and the amount was enough to do two good-size scarves.
