What do you think of this yarn? I am making a low cut V neck halter in this yarn (from Rowan mag #31) and I was wondering about the texture. What are your experiences? Have you noticed any good substitution yarns?

Cheers,
Corie

Corie I made the split neck top - Essence, from rowan mag #29 in a light blue. It turned out very nice and I found it pleasant to work with, didn't snag on my bamboo needles. I haven't washed or worn it though as I think I have to lose some more weight to feel comfortable in it. Are you having problems with it?

Hi there, I made a simple shell top using a soft pink colour. The yarn is a pleasure to work with and gets softer with each wash and wear. My only warning is to measure a swatch before AND after washing as there is definitely shrinkage in the length. Also tends to stretch slightly with wear but the shape returns after washing. Overall, it's a lovely yarn to work with.

Thanks for your advice. I am making a honeymoon gift for my soon-to-be sister, and wanted to get some words of wisdom from the knowledgeable ladies (and gents?) here on the board. I am going to the yarn shop today to get some pretty linen drape and get crackin! Thanks again! I'll let you know how it turns out when I'm done!
