I loved knitting with this yarn. I knit a beautiful sweater with it and it made it seem like the sweater was knitting up very quickly. It is a great yarn.

This is a great yarn. It is really is to use and the colors are so beautiful. It is chunky so it made knitting go faster. But when you use the yarn you will need a lot of it because it runs out quickly.

 Noro Silk Garden is Art in Your Hands 6 of 10 
 Review by: weavessence Feb 06, 2013 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Noro - Silk Garden
Noro Silk Garden is a wonderful yarn to work with. It is art in your hands. As a former shepherdess and yarn designer, I really look to knit with yarns that hold the vitality of their own origins. Noro's yarn still feels silky, warm, soft and vibrant - even though it has been processed and dyed. The knit stitches it produces I am knitting Susan Gutperl's and Sharon Miller's Birch pattern are lively and inviting and display color and pattern in a 'one of a kind' way. So that even several knitters using the same yarn in the same pattern will end up with unique finished objects. Because the Silk Garden is art in your hands, it is also a little undpredictable. There were a few very, very thin and very, very thick lengths in my skein. I had to be careful to adapt these to the pattern. And there were a few places where a color shift showed up in the skein that was just not harmonious with the complementary colors in the rest of the skein. Those lengths I just spliced out and then wove in the ends. The best aspect of Noro Silk garden is how it feels. It is warm, and light and inviting to knit with and to wear. Well worth the investment of time and your knitting budget to at least try once!

 Great yarn for weaving and knitting 7 of 10 
 Review by: weavessence Nov 28, 2012 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Loop-d-Loop - Quartz
I originally ordered this yarn to weave in a tapestry. When it arrived I was surprised by how soft it was and I liked the way the color blended with yellows, deep creams and browns. I have knit with the yarn also and it provides an excellent filler to use with a more expensive yarn and yet still end up with a fair amount of yardage. It is whereable and adds body to a knit or woven good in a way that enhances other yarns and knit or weave stitches.

 Debbie Bliss for Color Changes 9 of 10 
 Review by: weavessence Nov 15, 2012 
 Rating: 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Debbie Bliss - Angel
I was a bit unsure when I first got this yarn. I ordered a denim, a peacock and a teal. The peacock and teal seemed too saturated with color. But I tried each with the Alpaca Lace I was pairing them with and the colors blend very well. They knit smoothly and tink well if necessary. If you want very bright colors, this is your choice, it is easier to handle than the rowan. Or if you are pairing this yarn with another sturdier yarn, it makes a great pairing. And no matter what, so soft!

 Cascade Alpaca Lace Yarn 10 of 10 
 Review by: weavessence Nov 15, 2012 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Cascade - Alpaca Lace
I bought this yarn to pair with a Debbie Bliss Angel kidsilk so I could make subtle color changes over the course of a shawl. I am using it in a single strand, with the kidsilk on size 6 needles. I am knitting a shawl in stockinette with occasional rows of lace patterning. This yarn is knitting up beautifully. It is soft,light and warm. The color Lake Chelan is heathery and welcomes the kidsilk to create a sense of light play across the shawl. It is easy to tink if need be : and just looks inviting and lovely.
