I saw this yarn in a Fargo, North Dakota yarn shop and they only had one skein. So I search the web and your shop was the only one that had it. I have yet to knit it up yet, but will keep you posted. I am thinking of putting it in a skirt:)

I bought the yarn to knit the Hadley Infinity Scarf. I followed the pattern, but the scarf wouldn't go over my head, let alone to hang like the picture of it. I went up a needle size and 20 more stitches, so don't know how wide the scarf will be.
I truely love the yarn.

I loved knitting and seeing what happened - lots of surprises as the yarn changed and little flowers, etc. appeared. I love it!

I'm on my fourth scarf in this beautiful yarn. It knits up quickly and easily and I've found no problems I couldn't fix, like a few loose sequins. The yarn is so strikingly pretty it is a small sacrifice to pay. I use two skeins and do blocks of a stockinette, reverse stockinette pattern with a couple of garter stitch rows on either end. I also slip the first stitch of each row for a nicer edge. These have made great gifts and are the warmest scarves I've ever worn. I'm hooked!

I just knitted up one skein into a scarf. The yarn sheds like crazy. Using the directions for a scarf provided I found it is so short it barely wraps around my neck. The other problem is that some of the small flowers were detached from the yarn and some of the ribbon was detached from the yarn. I had to use glue to reattach these items. I really wanted to love this yarn, but found it not to be worth the high price.

I can hardly wait to get my needles into this yarn. I received my box today. I knew what was in it, but was was not prepared for the contents...my breath was taken away by the beauty of this yarn. OMIGOSH, just wonderful. I wish I was really rich so I could buy a bunch of it.

This yarn is the coolest yarn I have ever seen! To know that buying this helps underprivileged women makes it even better!

I love this yarn. I've never tried it because I wouldn't pay that much money for a little bit of yarn.

I couldn't get over all the little trinkets spun into this yarn. It was a blast to knit with!

t took me a few tries to get it right as I didn't have any pattern but I created a lovely boa width scarf for my niece and she just LOVES it!!! This yarn is not meant to be made into a large garment but works GREAT as an embellishment! To the previous comment - it would make a GREAT end of a larger scarf - what a fantastic idea!
