Beautiful socks! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I knitted socks for my husband in the colorway Lapwing - they are beautiful! The fabric turned out nicely and he is pleased. The only drawback is hand-washing of socks! This yarn will be beautiful for many types of project. I look forward to using more.

Tougher than it looks 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I've been swatching and frogging a beaded swatch for a shawl. I've been sliding beads up and down the same patch of yarn, I've knitted and ripped out the same bit. The yarn which is deceptively soft has stood up under this harsh treatment. That it is beautiful is a given, but it's good to know that it will be sturdy too.

Gorgeous dyes, gorgeous texture... the only thing to complain about is that i can't knit it fast enough!

love this yarn 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
Haven't finished the sweater yet, but I am pleasantly surprised by the feeling and texture of the yarn as it knits up. Originally a little put off by the rough feel of the yarn itself - it's a bit like twine - but I am enjoying knitting with this. The yarn does not have any springiness, but the fabric it makes is cushiony and has a wonderful drape and sheen. I absolutely love this color - bohemian waxwing, perfect for a fall knit. I was also worried about the yarn having alot of halo, which it does not. It may fuzz out over time, so I'll know more after a few months of wearing the sweater.
