This yarn is amazingly soft. It has a nice shine and creates vary nice fabric with great drape. I used it for the Silver Star by Chelsea Berkompas pattern. used the pink and white 2 skeins and it turn out great. It has a little halo due to the alpaca. at the beginning of the knitting I did not liked the halo, but at the end I just loved it, it gave the fabric great fluff. This scurf become my most nice to the touch + favorite item I knitted until today. the fabric also look vary luxurious. really hope that knit pick will create more colors. specially earthy naturals tones. I also bought the green blur and brown version, the colors are vary deep and saturated, I really liked the richness of the colors, the images on the website are similar to the actual colors. I recommend this yarn

This yarn does not have a twist to it and the needles split between the threads. It is hard to knit with. I made socks and they are very soft.

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!
