I am in love with this yarn!! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I just can't say enough about this yummy yarn! However, as with any fluffy yarn watch your stitches, so you don't accidentally make new ones with the fluff. I want to get enough to do a cardigan...ahhh now that would be heaven.

Oh I love this yarn!! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This is gorgeous stuff, the extra silk really makes a difference as compared to other silk/mohair blends, plus it has a lot more yardage. I can wear this against my skin, even my neck. Suit is a beautiful navy - not an almost black navy, a lovely blue sheen to it. Sigh!

Silk cloud 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This is a beautiful yarn and my favorite of all the silk and mohair mixes. The halo it produces is beautiful especially when used with other yarns. It is like knitting with a wisp of a cloud when used on it's own. Very soft and a lovely glimmer to it.
