This is my second purchase of this yarn, both times thru Jimmy Beans. It's a wonderful yarn to work with. The mohair halo does not mat or otherwise misbehave. It just gives an unbelievable softness and squeezability to the knitted item.
I am heartbroken to learn that the yarn is being discontinued. I can't find anything similar at an affordable price.
First, the yarn: When I opened the package, the yarn looked like a lump of cotton candy. It was very soft and fuzzy and squishable. It knits beautifully. I love mohair but dread knitting it because of shedding. The blend of this yarn sheds very little. I made a neckwarmer with a big floppy flower for trim from Bernat and I am very happy with my finished project and have already worn it twice.
Second, ordering from Jimmy Beans.I had a credit I wanted to use and I was looking for a particular yarn suggested for my project. Jimmy Beans carried it but it was not in my budge. The website has this awesome feature -- it suggests comparable yarns at other price points. That's how I found this yarn.
The websit is so easy to use. The colors illustrated are very true to the yarn received. Shipping is very fast, my order always arrive before I am expecting it. I have become a dedicated Jimmy fan.
This was the recommended yarn for a beret pattern. I had never used yarn from this company before and I had never used Jimmy Beans to order yarn before. Double the nerves!
First, Jimmy Beans. It was easy to order, they did great follow up and the yarn arrived on time, and the packaging was intact. I was pleasantly surprised to find patterns on the back of the packaging.
Second, Silk Blend yarn. The color of the yarn is even more beautiful than the photo on the web site. The yarn is easy to knit, has a slight sheen and feels luxurious as I work with it. This will be a Christmas present and I know the recipient will be thrilled with the gift.
All things said and done, I am 110% satisfied with my purchase.
