Love the drape 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Love the drape of this yarn, but if it is picked, it has a white core.

picture makes the colors more brilliant 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
I have ordered gobs of yarn from here and this is the first I have ordered anything and been disappointed with it. The texture feels nice but the colors are a very drab version of whats pictured. I know you always take a chance that its not going to be exact but I don't think I would be exaggerating when I say that its night and day. The only time the sheen shows up is with a fluorescent light. Other than that its a dull flat coloring. Dont order November Sky if you want those vibrant colors in the picture, or at least beware when ordering!!!

Can't say enough about this yarn!! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This yarn is amazing!!! I could write for hours about how great it is and still not give it enough credit. It's soft without being overly slippery, it has fantastic stitch definition, and makes beautiful lace without pooling. LOVE, LOVE LOVE!

Lovely. 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I've been using this yarn as a accent color and I really like the drape and color intensity of this yarn. I'd like to try it in a larger project!

Really Lovely yarn. 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The color was rich & beautiful, lovely drape. Used it for a knitted trim, but would like to use it again in a larger project.
