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'

I just bought this yarn as a splurge for myself- I love the deep purple of the smoky quartz- I would love it even more if it also came in a charcoal grey color too

Love this yarn! So happy it was brought back. Any chance 'gold' colour will be coming back? Hoping so, I have some great patterns that would be perfect in gold...crossing my fingers
