Just received the color, Black Orchid. Would never have imagined myself describing black as gorgeous, but it is. At this point I can't say whether the color will survive being washed delicately, of course, but it is such a joy to look at that I am leaving it out to delight the eye awhile longer. I made a hat once with Yak, so I can highly recommend this particular yarn to anyone seeking maximum warmth *and* luscious softness.
The feel of this luxury yarn ... the look ... just beyond gorgeous. I don't normally buy yarn with sequins, but the ones used in this yarn are petite and ladylike. Definitely not floozy sequins! And the bounty of the tiny beads perfectly complements them.
I read somewhere that a person should try to keep a thing of beauty close by at all times, to refresh one's mind. So right now, I have the skeins I bought within touching distance from the chair I sit in most often. Now, how does this yarn knit up? Well, I'm still in the stage where I cannot bear to use them up so I don't know!
Bought 'saphire' from this line just because I loved the colors. Looks were not deceiving! This is lucious, gorgeous yarn and the feel of it will give your fingers a cuddle. Am making myself finish my current project, though, before starting something new, so I can't speak to how it works up.
