      I decided to get myself a gift - so a surprise skein sounded fun to me! I got a yummy skein in blues and greys - it is so beautiful I don't know yet what to do with it - but for now it is so pretty and soft as it is I may just love on it for a while - LOL - doesn't everybody caress yarn that is so soft as this is?

      My surprise skein was the Superwash Merino Silk Pearlescent worsted weight that was a tester in shades of pink. It's sooo soft and comfortable to work with.

      I got a surprise skein just for the heck of it and I wasn't disappointed. It was a tester of a cream to golden brown DK weight. Very soft and very pretty! What's funny is that it actually contrasted beautifully with the dark blue I purchased at the same time - too bad they're different weights.

      My surprise skein is a Tester that is light to medium blue in color. It's a Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Worsted base. What makes it even more lovely is that the color matches wonderfully with the Sapphire skein I ordered at the same time. I am very pleased with my order.

      It was a tester color similar to the June Alexandrite on Fingering Pearlescent Wool. Stunningly beautiful yarn. I love blues and jewel tones, this yarn really made me happy.

      I knew the yarn would be high quality, which it was. The best part was that it was it is shades of light blue, one of my go-to colors. I couldn't have gotten a prettier yarn if I had picked it out myself.

      the quality as usual is excellent, but the color is just not very pretty. Disappointed but knew that could happen...will stash and maybe inspiration will pop in my head

    19. Best Surprise I've Had In Years!!!  star rating

      Posted by RAD on 4th Feb 2016

      I had always been used to the bargain basement yarn when I did my crochet work. I took a long break for crocheting and when I returned to the crochet world I had the good fortune to meet up with Expression Fiber Arts. I thought the prices were a little steep for me, but now that I have made a few purchases, I find the quality is way above the pricing.

    20. Interesting surprise  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 16th Jan 2016

      The surprise forced me out of my comfort zone color wise! I received a red color way and since I would never gave purchased red directly it was a surprise! Currently have it marked for a scarf just looking for the right pattern.

    21. Wonderful Surprise  star rating

      Posted by Sherrie on 21st Dec 2015

      The skein I received was a wonderful surprise! It was soft and wonderful colors and truly me. Don't know how you knew. And what I liked best is that is was a colorway that I hadn't seen yet! Although I would have been just as happy with one of the wonderful ones I had seen. Getting unknown skeins helps me think outside my usual styles and ideas so I don't get boring.

    22. Great colors  star rating

      Posted by Lynn on 30th Nov 2015

      The range of colors are spectacular. It's obvious great care and effort are put into each skein. I like crocheting with your products because of the way they feel.

      I absolutely love my surprise skein! I love the yarn base (resilient sock) and the colors are perfect! Reminds me of a lighter version of Pensive :) super cute and squishy!

    26. Stunning and beautiful  star rating

      Posted by S. Lohmeier on 10th Feb 2015

      I have received some of the most vibrantly colored and uniquely textured skeins from earlier color lines this way. In this case, it was a silk yarn with sparkles in some of my most favorite colors ever. This deal is magnificent and I would always buy this again, not only for quality but also for the beautiful surprises received. This is really a bargain!

    27. Received my Surprise Skein today  star rating

      Posted by Lynn on 20th Jan 2015

      I received "Charcoal Enchantment" Cozy Silk Lace in purple, fuchsia, grey and pink shades, 800 yards. So soft with a sheen. It will be beautiful when knit. Could be a long gradient. What a surprise because it wasn't any of the choices in the current items for sale. NOT to mention that I lean toward these colors. :) Thank you Chandi.
