Silk IS luxuryReview by John

Dear Abby,
The yarn is super to knit. It does not overtwist - sometimes a problem, and it doesn't split. Silk doesn't have "memory" like wool, but neither does it felt, so dropped stitches are easy to pick up, and it slides along the needles easily. In the skein there were a couple of knots, which I untied as we were winding it into balls, so I am confident to start each row without fear of finding a join half way through - so far this is just the one piece - no joins, no trailing ends except the cast on tail. Each section of the skein is wound on to two pieces of kitchen towel as you can see in the pic, but it did take an hour-and-a-half for the two of us. Silk is not hygroscopic, so it does not pick up the dirt while I am working, and I am managing a row in about 5 minutes. I love the relief created in the texture which should remain, even when the work is blocked. All-in-all fanstastic. If anyone else asks you, tell them from me!
Best wishes, John (Posted on 31/07/2013)

I have just finished my shawl and I am so so happy with it. The colours are really vibrant and it was such a pleasure to knit with. I will definitely be ordering this yarn again. Thank you. (Posted on 15/05/2013)

I deliberated for a while before buying this yarn, but now I dont know why I waited and just want to buy more and more. It is completely delicious. The colours even better in the 'flesh' and it has a beautiful sheen and drape. It was a joy to knit with and the finished shawl is the envy of all my friends. I can't wait to make another one. Now which colour should I have this time... (Posted on 26/02/2013)
