Overall Silk/Merino Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (4.6 based on 14 reviews)

Beautiful and soft 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
Fantastic yarn, so squishy and soft. I only gave it 4 stars because it bled like crazy all over my hands. I'll still use it, but only one color per project!

Popoki colorway bled and dye ran : 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I absolutely love Silk/Merino and use it for so many next to skin gifts. Recently, I used the Popoki colorway for a linen-stitch scarf. The bright colors popped and while I was making it I took it everywhere, I got many questions and compliments. Imagine my surprise when it was finished and I let it soak in some Euclan/cool water before blocking. Almost all the red color released and ran and perhaps some of the blue, leaving a pink overdyed, muted scarf. As soon as I saw the sink I added some vinegar, but to no avail. It is still a beautiful, soft, cozy scarf, but is nowhere near the brilliance I'd hoped for.

So soft and pretty 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This yarn is absolutely beautiful. It is soft and squishy with a gorgeous sheen. I only gave it 4 out of 5 starts, though, because it is bleeding like crazy all over my hands as I knit it. I would definitely not knit more than one color of it in a single project.

Silk/Merino 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
add on to previous review. Anyone else have this problem with this yarn fuzzing up? Color great, knits beautifully. But it has a real problem becoming fuzzy. You dont want to put alot of money and time in something that is going to pill.

Silk/Merino 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I purchased this in Baltic, a great color. The problem with the yarn is that it began to fuzz up after knitting about two weeks, on a two skein shawl. There were little fuzzy areas which if not trimmed off probably will become pills. This was before I blocked the shawl. It knits beautifully, but this fuzzing problem is concerning.
