Overall Pima Silk Hand Paint Rating: 5 out of 5 (5.0 based on 19 reviews)

You won't believe it contains no wool! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Gorgeous. Stunning. Soft. Not at all splitty. Not heavy, like most cottons - how does Misti do it?? A bit lighter weight than DK, I think - I'm getting 24st to 4 on US 4. I'm starting a short sleeved summer cardi with it perfect for the hot, humid, and over-airconditioned south.

Love the colors! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I purchased this yarn simply for the beautiful colors. I haven't knit with it yet, but the softness has me touching it a lot. I've been dreaming about what to make.

yummiest yarn yet! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
My previous experiences with cotton yarn have been disappointing. Too hard and stretchy. But, this is something different, and very special. It is soft, tightly spun, and the silk gives it a sheen and softness that is amazing! The colors are delightful, and I will definitely use it again, and have recommended it to other knitters! Thank you! Renée
