Fantastic

The drops kid-silk is unbelievably soft — I am knitting it up with the drops Nepal in matching shades of blue with 6.5mm needles and the effect is plush, luscious, and with a little gleam from the silk.

Lovely yarn

The two colours I was working with blended to a soft off white but my knitting was too big. In the end I felted the hat to make it smaller and the kid-silk worked beautifully. Now it is the right size and delightfully fuzzy.

Kid Silk

I’m in love with that yarn. Expensive but great for knitting sweaters, cardigans, beanies. Highly recommend.
