Please don’t discontinue this line. Precosia is my most favourite of all your yarns! I will be so sad!

Oh my I am so upset this yarn is going away. It is so very very soft. im winding up the prettiest blues now. i will forever wish i had gotten more before they discontinued it. however it will make my fingerless mitts more special. i wonder if they will keep the Bare to dye? i love this very soft warm yarn. its wonderful.

Why, oh why, is this being discontinued! It is gorgeous and lovely to work with.

Beautiful, soft yarn. I have not used it yet, but I would it into a ball from my swift and I enjoyed the feel of this yarn.

I love this yarn! It's so soft & the subtle color change is gorgeous! The single ply is so easy to knit with! It makes beautiful shawls, hats, etc. that are lightweight, but warm. If you need thicker items, get the worsted version, it's great too :)

I love Preciosa fingering. I have used it on multiple occasions, but most recently used Panther to make beaded fingerless mitts for my oldest daughter for her birthday. Wish I could post a picture of them - the red, orange and gold beadwork on the tonal black background is just awesome (maybe I will post to the KnitPicks FB page). I plan on purchasing a bunch of the Preciosa Bare - my dear friend is a yarn dyer and is custom making me a specific shade of blue for me for a sweater for my other daughter.

I just started using Preciosa for the first time and oh, my.. so soft. The boysenberry tonal is the colour of ripe cherries and so yummy. The hand and spinning are excellent as with most Knit Picks' products!

I ordered this in Bonsai and I am in love! It's soft and buttery. The green shades are gorgeous with a lovely sheen. Shipping was fast! I'm now a dedicated knitpicks customer!

absolutely love this yarn. It's the first wool that I can actually wear against my skin without going nuts from the itching. It's super soft and knitted up lovely.

Just arrived, could not wait to ball up and use with Carnival chroma for DFW pattern from Ravelry. Both colors and textures of yarns are working beautifully together. Price was right too (goldfidh works harmoniously and almost identical to competitors "$30/skein Copper Pennies"). Love it...will make a super xmas gift at a super price. Thanks Knit Picks. My heart goes out to you on the loss of Bob. We lost our patriarch cat Blue on July 5. Only time resolves some of the pain of loss.

I am working on my first project using this yarn and I love it. It is very soft and has such lovely colors. The subtle color variations are so pretty and it almost glows. It works up beautifully and I have had very little splitting. I am going to purchase some in Worsted weight to make a hat, mittens and scarf for my daughter who just moved to Idaho from Florida. I am sure she can use them this winter with the huge change in weather. ;)

Just wound 9 skeins of fingering Preciosa into balls and it's so beautiful! No breakage at all, no knots and the hand is wonderful! It's a bit shiny in the skein but blooms a little when knitting. It splits a teeny bit so you have to pay attention but it's working up very nicely in a Herringbone throw pattern in fingering weight Pokeberry and Bare. I'm using two-tone Preciosa in Pokeberry because I think it will show a sense of movement, not as "flat" as a solid color would in avHerringbone. The knitted fabric feels thicker than fingering weight yarn. And I would highly recommend Preciosa for garments but I would lean to fingering more than worsted. It's beautiful! You can't go wrong with Preciosa.

This has become my go-to fingering weight yarn for almost any project. It is super soft and squishy while still being sturdy and lightweight. I love the gorgeous colors, too. Please make more!

Love how soft and pretty this is. Also love the tonal colourways. However, I ordered the anemone and while it looks like a gorgeous coral online, the actual yarn was quite a bit more vibrant in person, a very bright pink. The boysenberry that I also ordered was exactly as shown online.

This yarn is incredible. I started a pair of socks in the Goldfish colorway and I'm blown away. It knits up beautifully, so well that it almost looks like it's already been blocked while still on the needles! I'm probably going to be buying this yarn in just about every color. I love it.
