I absolutely love this yarn. I made a beautiful cardigan using this yarn. It crochets easily and It’s really soft. Luckily for me it frogs well. I chose a pattern that starts from the top down, which I have never done before so with that and just missing stitches because I wasn’t keeping track of my stitches, I had to frog quite a few times. I loved it so much I had to order some other colors. I can’t wait to use the peach color one that I recently ordered. I can’t remember the name of it but it’s really pretty. I highly recommend this yarn.

This yarn is an absolute dream! I bought a bunch of colours, knowing that I'd have a new grandchild soon. The first item I made was a newborn cardigan and it crocheted beautifully. It's so easy to work with and is INCREDIBLY soft. The strands of cotton don't unwind from the strand of silk. It has a gorgeous sheen in the finished product and I'm so glad i bought as much as I did. My only complaint is that there aren't nearly enough colours. I want ALL the colours of the colour wheel!! I love it that much.


Melissa

This yarn is so fun to work with. I crocheted a dress using the Eucalyptus colorway (which is darker, bluer, and richer that it looks online), and it was so easy to work with. The construction of the yarn means it doesn't split very easily (and also frogs painlessly). It has a nice texture from the ply but still glides smoothly. I do wish that this would come in a lighter weight, though, since the fabric this works up into is actually quite thick, while I'd expect a cotton and silk garment to be lighter.


Lauren

I love this yarn. It's so soft, and I love the slight contrast between silk and cotton fibers as they are plied together. It drapes so nicely and feels so nice on the skin. I'm using the Misty Green color to make a basketweave sweater and it has been working up so nicely. I had no issues with splitting, and I felt like the color matched the images. Highly recommend this for a bit more of a luxurious yarn than just a standard cotton.


Sara

WOW! I ordered this to try out for spring and summer knits and was blown away by how incredible it is. Seriously, it’s hard to believe it’s just cotton and silk because it’s just so bouncy and soft… especially after blocking. It’s going to be perfect for summer ganseys; but, it’d also be great for ruffles or shirring because of how well it drapes. I will DEFINITELY be ordering more in other colors!
