Lovely ... but 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
It's got a nice soft feel and it's a very smooth knit. I'm not very far into my first sweater project with this yarn, but so far it's been a good knit. There is no splitting in the yarn and it creates a nice flat fabric. I'm sure once I get further in the piece will have a lovely drape. I am using one of the darker colors - Morgan Green - and I did notice that there was some dye on my fingers. So I would suggest care in wetting and washing as there will be some bleeding. And that is my only complaint. I will definitely use this yarn again.

An Inexpensive Indulgence 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
This is my favorite less expensive sock yarn. It feels very silky and soft while on my fingers and then later on my toes! It also has a slight glow which showcases the my lace patterns. The Bamboo content does reduce elasticity and will pill a little if not washed with extra care but the beautiful result is certainly worth that for me.

Panda Silk Yarn 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I just love working with this yarn! My socks feel great in the knitting as well as the wearing. I gave it a 4star rating because I find it's best to hand wash it to prevent pills, and it will wear longer using smaller needles for the soles. I use 2.5 mm needles but then I knit quite tightly.

Fun, easy to work with, great color blends! 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I love this yarn. It's not a luxury yarn, but it is very inexpensive and makes beautiful pieces, every time. This is my go-to yarn when I want to make an inexpensive gift!
