I am making a lace-edged cardigan with this yarn. The merino-silk plied combination offers excellent stitch definition in a soft but sturdy yarn. Easy to frog and tink without splitting too. Shibui has created a winner at a reasonable price point.

I was so impressed with this yarn until I washed it, then what a surprise. I have never had a yarn expand so much when it hit water, but since learned that this feature is called: bloom. More like explosion... Purchase the chrome, a really pretty pearl grey and worked a scarf in double strand,-looked really beautiful as it was being worked into a mock cable rib with a few Y/O holes for lightness. Number 8 needles. Perfect tension I thought. I even tried a swatch in 7's but the sample was too tight. I thought. Then it came time to wash and poof, it spread out to double it's size, never to go back to quite the same springiness and bounce as originally knit. I guess it was the 30% silk, although I'm not really certain. It was kind of like buying a yardage of some substantial cotton fabric, only to have it go all limp when you washed because all the body came from sizing. If you really want to use this, I would strongly suggest going down at least to a 6 needle for double thread, and if you feel it's too tight, don't worry about it. It will loosen up by leaps and bounds.
