Somewhat difficult to knit with because it 'twists' as it is knitted. Works well as a
bulky but there are some thin spots. Recommend
working a small piece to determine if you like
knitting with this yarn.

I love this yarn for small projects--I prefer it to Noro's Daria when making small purses. Because each skein really is unique, I find I like it best as trim or integrated with other yarn. It does have a "twist" to it as it is spun from recycled silk scraps and clothing. Great way to feel "green" about recycling and make a "statement" all your own.

I found this yarn too difficult to work with because of the twisting. I was planning on making a shawl and gave up after about three tries on patterns. I resold the yarn at quite a discount because I couldn't think what to do with it.
