I received 2 skeins in Rose
Made the Silver Leaf pattern by Lisa Hannes.
The yarn is crisp and firm. Nice to work with and it gives tons of stitch definition. Caution, it did bleed when soaking. I used unicorn fibres wool conditioner. Water was pink after the wash, clear on the rinse. Two tub method with no temp change. Spun out in washing machine. Hung to block and dry.
All projects talked about are in projects shared on the Ravelry group.
