I love this yarn, it’s amazing to knit with! I recommend the Meandering Lace Shawlette pattern to knit this beautiful yarn with. I’ve already made two and they are soft, comfortable and light.

I bought 4 skeins of this yarn last year. Finally began using it now. It splits, sheds and is difficult to work with.

I've discovered something really wonderful about Diadem. In combination with other yarns for example with pulled work, this yarn makes the whole piece so much softer. I've combined it with some alpaca and a wool variegated, Chroma Fingering, and the result is really extraordinary: a well structured piece that will last, the benefit of beautiful colours and oh, so soft to the touch. I'm making a stole for myself with a hood for next winter. When I have more of it done, I'll post photos. Knit Picks does it again!

I love this yarn, It's so luxurious and it works like heaven in my machine. I use it to make fingerless gloves for my shop on Etsy-bethsknits. They are gorgeous.

I LOVE this yarn. I do machine knitting and it works up beautifully in my machine. I use it to make fingerless gloves. You can check them out in my shop on Etsy - bethsknits. They are titled 'fingerless gloves to die for'
