This yarn is a very robust single-ply. It knits up at a variety of gauges and the color progressions are really beautiful. I used two balls to make a slightly larger version of Martina Behm's 22 Little Clouds and despite LOTS of wear and tugging and interaction with winter zippers and velcro, it still looks fresh off the needles.
I adore this yarn. Big, long color sequences in an ombre not repeating stripes progression. I used 2 skeins of this yarn last year to knit 22 Little Clouds by Martina Behm. The resulting wonderful little scarf has worn beautifully, soft and yet sturdy, even when meeting the velcro parts of my dogwalking coat!
I adore this yarn. It feels fantastic, silky and fluffy like true angora, and shows the stitches very nicely. I am knitting up Bette from the Angora Haze pattern book, and the lace stitch stands out nicely. There is a wee bit of shedding I would not recommend wearing black knit pants while you knit with it!, but it's nothing compared to the shedding from 100% angora. This yarn lets me knit with a favorite fiber without clouds of fluff all around my armchair.
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!
