I was nervous about this yarn when I started weaving my scarf but man, after it’s been washed, it has a beautiful drape and is so soft without being fluffy, if that makes sense. It’s sturdy too. Everyone was so impressed with my scarf and they wanted me to weave scarves for them! It’s so unique too - rustic, like another reviewer said, but also strangely luxurious?
I really enjoyed weaving with the Italian silk noil yarn. The scarf I made looks rustic but feels like a dream, so soft and lightweight. I used it for both warp and weft. Very easy to work with. I'm looking forward to many more projects with this yarn.
I found the yarn challenging to work with as it is very fine. I made a scarf with this and two contrasting colours. The yarn sheds a lot of fluff with the friction of weaving but that said I am very happy with the finished scarf.
Wish I could upload a picture of the scarves (yes, plural), I've woven from this yarn. Wanted to add this blue as a stripe into the next scarf. Woven on my rigid heddle loom. Light weight and warm. Beautiful yarn!
I can’t wait to use this yarn. The color is just like the picture, and it is so soft. It is the fiber of choice for my next project! I’m excited to get started!
