I love this yarn. It's gorgeous and very soft. I bought two colors when it was on sale. I didn't get around to working with it until now. I started knitting a sweater using firefly. It looks so luminous and luxurious. Please add more colors.

I ordered this yarn to make a tank top- using a vintage pattern that I'm rewriting as I go. It is beautiful, easy to knit with, and definitely bounces back after stretching. I will use this in the future for sure; to make toys as well.

I love the feel of this yarn. Its colors are so rich. The 3 sweaters I have knit are beautiful with wonderful drape and the close fitting one does not looked stretched. I am going to use it to make a gift for a relative who lives in the Deep South who does not wear wool ordinarily.

I love this yarn. It knits up beautifully, holds the pattern and has a shine to it. Will use this again and hope for some new colors.

Fantastic yarn! I received this for Christmas and have just now finished up enough projects that I could treat myself to starting something new. I cannot believe I waited to use this yarn! It is lovely in the hand with a nice glide, yet not slick enough to slither off your needles. It has a subtle shine, that combined with the weight, gives it an absolutely sumptuous feel. Talk about indulgence! Definitely a keeper KnitPicks, just give us a few more lighter colors please. Thank you, thank you.

This yarn is beautiful to knit with. I'm making a shawl with lace sections and seed stitch texture. Galileo is easy on the hands, doesn't split, and has a nice sheen to it. I want more!

This is one of the most beautiful yarns I've ever knit with. It has beautiful stitch definition and the colors are gorgeous. Everyone who sees me knitting with it stops to admire the yarn. Please continue to carry this, I can see myself knitting with it over and over again!

Just finished a summer sweater in firefly! Love the hand of the yarn ... very easy to work with. I love this yarn and am already thinking of my next project with it. ... I'll welcome more colors as they come along since I'll be using this for years to come!
