Absolutely beautiful! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
You can't go wrong with this yarn. The feel of it is wonderful. It knits beautifully. I would recommend it.

Disapointing 1 out of 5 stars (1 out of 5)
I was so excited to get this yarn in order to start a shawl for my sister in law's 50th birthday. More money than I would normally spend on a hank of yarn. Did not forsee the headache it would become. I have been knitting and crocheting for 20 years and have wound many hanks of yarn. This was by far the worst!!The hank was tangled from within. I am not exaggerating when I say - it was like opening a can of worms!!! It pilled so badly in so many places that it was attaching itself to multiple strands of yarn. Once I finally got it mostly untangled, in 2 different balls with one section such a mess I cut it off the quality of yarn has been compromised with fuzzy sections and separating throughout. I am now questioning whether I want to invest hours of work for this birthday shawl if the quality of yarn is already diminishing. Such a let down for a project I was so excited to start. This yarn should come pre-wound. I wish I would have asked for that service when I ordered. Sadly, now I am stuck with not only the frustration and time of untangling and winding but I am stuck with a yarn I don't think lives up to its price.

This is a gorgeous yarn. The color is beautiful and appears radiant after you start to knit with it.

The Worst 1 out of 5 stars (1 out of 5)
It's all looks with this yarn. The way it's wrapped up leads to tangles that you will never get out. I will never use this yarn again. It should be wrapped in a ball. If I could give zero stars I would. So frustrating.

Absolutely gorgeous, rich, soft, luxurious 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I absolutely love this yarn. I just received my third order, this time in colorway Masala my previous two colorways were Peridot and Bronze. The sheen is so beautiful, the colors are saturated, and the yarn is so silky. I haven't yet completed a project with this, so I can't speak to blocking which I imagine will be somewhat challenging due to the silk content, but the half-finished stole and shawl that I am currently working on are so incredibly soft. Even a light brush by the garment against the skin feels so silky soft, and the drape is of course beautiful. I know that I will really treasure the finished items that I make with this, and that I can consider them heirloom quality. I've also decided that this will be my yarn of choice if I have the opportunity to make a beautiful wedding shawl for any future brides in my circle.

Love the drape 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Love the drape of this yarn, but if it is picked, it has a white core.
