I've loved Kidsilk Haze for a very long time, and was eager to try this version. It is lovely in its own right, but really quite a different yarn than Kidsilk Haze. The extra strand of sequins makes it a somewhat heavier yarn and while it is perfect for any KSH pattern that calls for bigger needles, it is not as ethereally light and fluffy as regular KSH. However, I'm knitting it up into the Ruched Wrap from Churchmouse on size 8s and 10s and it is absolutely perfect at that gauge. And yes, it is glamorous!
This is supreme luxury yarn, with generous yardage, but keep in mind what it can and can't be expected to do. It knits up at worsted gauge but is a thin, drapey kind of worsted, so think of garments or accessories that benefit from that. Every minute of this sliding through my hands makes me happy!
No doubt about it, this is yarn on the fussy side. It has zero elasticity, and runs thicker and fluffy versus very thin and somewhat fragile, so forget anything with fancy stitches or ribbing that needs to pull in. And, it sheds while you knit, so dress accordingly. The shedding isn't as bad as angora, and makes no difference in the visual look of the knit, but if you're wearing black chinos... I normally like my yarns with a lot of bounce, but this is so SOFT and just screams luxury so I didn't want to give up. After trying a couple of different ideas, I settled on a Honey Cowl for someone extra EXTRA special, and I'm very happy with how it's turning out. The knit is still in process, but I suspect a post-knit bath will resolve most of, if not all of, any residual shedding.
