I paired this yarn with BSA alpaca silk and made a cabled scarf and hat. It turned out soft as a cloud and slightly fuzzy but you can still see the cables. It was easy to knit even on #2's with the alpaca. It never snagged, knotted, tangled or split. The colors are true and beautiful. The yardage is generous. I have been asked repeatedly where I got the fabulous scarf and hat! Just ordered more!
This yarn is as luxurious as any I've ever purchased. The colors (papaya and ginger) are rich and the silky sheen is amazing. I have splurged on much more expensive yarn in the past - this is every bit as gorgeous and with generous yardage! The lacework and cabled scarves I made are beautiful and soft as a dream. I will definitely buy again!
This yarn is great for fair isle. Yes, you can find less expensive Peruvian highland wool, but the alpaca in this yarn is worth every bit of the few extra dollars. The colors are true, it handles like a dream, and is ever so soft. It's now one of my staples!
I loved this yarn and the Undulating Waves beaded scarf kit. Heather is very soft and the colors (Elena Piscopia) are gorgeous. Don't let the 2-star difficulty rating or the beads scare you. If you've done knit, purl, yo patterns, you'll be fine, and it just takes some time at the beginning to thread the beads on. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Once you've done two repeats, it's easy, goes quickly and the scarf is really beautiful. My best friend begged me to give it to her so I'm ordering another kit for myself - hopefully I'll get to keep this one!
