Having already enthused about Luminance in my review for Luminance Hand Painted, I'll be brief here. The color I ordered (Meditation) was exactly what I expected it to be based on the photo. The two hanks I received were a little pilly on the outside, as opposed to the numerous pristine, shimmery hanks of Hand Paint that I have used, which is why I have rated regular Luminance at 4 stars instead of 5. However, it is knitting up beautifully into a shawl for a mother of the bride!

Winding the yarn was a pain due to how slippery it is, and dropping a stitch is a nightmare (USE LIFELINES!) but I'm absolutely loving how it looks and feels as it works up. Using "Thoughtful" to make "In Perfect Harmony" from "Luxurious Lace"

I am using my Luminance in Innocence with Aloft in Blush as a Gathered Scarf and let me say it is the softest thing I have ever knitted in my life. The colors are perfect together. As far as winding the Luminance, it wound wonderfully. Not knots nor tangles. I will be getting more in different colors after i make something with my 2 skeins of Bare Luminance which Im going to dye soon.

Luminance yarn is heavenly! This is the first time I've used silk yarn and also my first venture into lace weight. I used a ball winder and then slid the ball onto a paper tube and had no problems with tangling. The silk is a bit slippery, so it required a little more attention to the stitches and tension, but the end result was well worth it. I made a lace shawl for a friend in the Meditation colorway on 4 needles, and the result was beautiful. Spray blocking worked great and really made the wrap look finished. So lightweight, flowing, and extremely soft! I didn't notice any piling or color run. I will use this yarn again, and again, and again!

This yarn is so soft and a stunning colour however I am so disappointed with how it knits up. I have started three projects and given up on all three. I could not get a consistent tension and it kept knotting. Soooooo disappointed it is back in my stash.
