Not the softest yarn 1 out of 5 stars
I would like to give this yarn a better review, but I can't. I was looking forward to this yarn from some of the patterns. Then I saw it / felt it in a store. I was shocked by the quality for the price. I took some to my clients, so ask their opinion- They gave it a thumbs down. The positive- GREAT colors.

Worth the money 4 out of 5 stars
Easy to work with. Looks so luxurious when worked up. The depth of color and the sheen are amazing. One note- Yarn tends to be splitty, if that is something you struggle with. I Knitted a scarf on my machine with this yarn and worked like a dream. I will use it again and again.

Gorgeous Yarn, Never got to work with it 2 out of 5 stars
I was drawn to this yarn with the Idira Ghandi color way Plus: The yardage is a whopping 560 yards, and it is a superwash. The yarn is classified as a luxury yarn, but the only fiber that would make is any more luxurious than a standard sock/fingering yarn is 25% mohair. The Negative- I put the yarn on my swift, and quickly realized- it was a knotted mess. I tried to un-knot it- but to no avail. The entire ball had to be thrown in the trash= unsalvagable. It was then when it was pointed out to me that they actually have instructions for balling- Which leads me to believe this happens more often than not, judging from the instructions. Hopefully others have better luck with this yarn than I did. It should be noted that I re-ball all yarn that I use. Whether it is in ball form or hank, and I have been doing this for a better part of 8+ years, so it is not as though I don't know how to use my swift and baller.

Beautiful Yarn Easy to work with 5 out of 5 stars
I loved this yarn so much that I wrote a Tunisian Crochet pattern to go with it! It has a wonderful hand, easy to work with, and so affordable. The color choices are amazing- deep and rich. You would think this was a much more expensive yarn. The white "slubs" add depth to the finished piece. It should be noted that this is a slightly "thick/thin" yarn- but not to the extreme.
