Great inexpensive choice! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I got this yarn to make a beaded shawl, and I'm glad I did. It's a BEAUTIFUL color and a great overall yarn. It's a joy to knit with, very soft, and no splitting.

Fantastic 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This is definitely one of my favorite yarns to work with. It works up fantastically: it maintains its softness while giving great stitch definition. I also LOVE how big a hank you get for the money! I've finished about 6 smaller projects so far with just one skein (an adult beret, several baby hats and bootie sets), and I still have more left over! I'm going to enjoy trying all the different colors offered, and I'm only sorry I can't try them all at once!

great color 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The color is rich with a subtle sheen. Stitch definition is clear. I think I'll really like the lace I'm knitting with this.

color rubs off 2 out of 5 stars (2 out of 5)
I bought a hank of the yarn in the Cerulean color and started on the cuff of a sock while I watched TV. After I finished the cuff I put the knitting aside and noticed that my fingers are blue. I'm very concerned about what will happen when this yarn is washed but I am also not looking forward to the idea of having to scrub my hands every time I do any knitting. The yarn is nice and soft and knits up beautifully, though.

Amazing! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love this yarn! I was one of e smoothest yarns to knit and produced a beautiful shawl with gorgeous drape and a subtle sheen. I will definitely buy again!

Sooooooooooooo soft ! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Great color, too. I was lucky to buy this on Wool Watcher--what a deal. Especially when you consider it has 437yds per skein! It is extremely soft, merino and silk...hard to beat.

Catnip Socks 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I am loving this yarn. The color is rich, but not shiny. Very soft, clear stitch definition, and generous yardage. I will use it again in the future.
