•Silk is a wonderful insulator, so you stay warm in winter and cool in summer. It has a beautiful drape, undeniable shimmer and satiny, creamy feel. It's truly a treasure among fibers and hard not to fall in love with!
•Did I mention the SHIMMER? ;)
•Silk soaks up dye like no other. This means rich, vibrant shades that you have to actually see in person to appreciate.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
Just received my beautiful Peacock Feathers Sparkle Silk Lace and it is even more amazing than it appeared online. It is so soft and the sparkle enhances the wonderful colors of the yarn.
I haven't used it yet but the colours and sparkle are gorgeous. It feels lovely also. I think I've found the pattern I'm going to use it for and can't wait to see it made up.
There's no doubt that this yarn is beautiful...so much so that I dove into a project with it almost immediately. However, I have found it very difficult to work with because the shiny thread is so loosely spun into the silk that it is constantly separating and complicating the stitching. I will plod on, hoping that this improves and that I get a result to reward my patience.
This yarn is amazing and gorgeous. I'm making a shawl right now with 100% alpaca, but want to do another shawl with this yarn as well! Everything I've gotten from EFA is a joy to work with!
What a treat!!!! The colors are rich, gorgeous and eye-catching. The sparkle adds just enough glam to give your piece that special touch and the silk adds softness and drape. Chandi and team have done it again. This is the yarn to treat yourself to if you're looking for that extra special skein for your project.
So I have gotten some really special yarn from EFA, and every skein I've bought has been wonderful. This yarn is easily the best thing I've ever bought. I gasped when I fist saw it in person. I can't wait to make an incredibly gorgeous shawl from this yarn.
