I love this yarn especially for clothing. The only problem is there are no choice of colors. Even the colors that you have on display in the group picture are not available. I buy in bulk and I cannot buy 10 or more when you don't have the colors that I desire.

Love this yarn. I wish there were more colours to choose from, particularly the bronze (top left in the photo) and bright pink (bottom right in the photo)

I love it! Soft, lustrous, great drape. I'd love to see more colors in the future! Ordered black, so I had no issue with color difference between actual yarn and color on screen. It did loosen up after blocking, but that is what I was hoping for with my project (a cardigan with a lace back). Will certainly purchase again! :)

Love the feel and sheen of this yarn - I believe this is so far my favorite yarn with which to knit. I agree with the other reviewers that the colors are much darker in person than on the computer. I would still buy more of this yarn! It would be nice to see some more vibrant colors in the future. Highly recommended!
