Skacel Yarn - Urban Silk

After much anticipation, I received the shipment of Skacel yarn, Urban Silk. I had heard so much about this yarn that I could not wait to order a sample pack for the shop.

It is an absolutely GORGEOUS yarn with limited but beautiful colors that are rich and vibrant. The yarn itself is luxuriously soft. The fibers are 80% Silk, 20% Cotton. You get 92 yards per 50 gram ball, and it knits up on a US7-9 knitting needle, yielding 4-5sts per inch. I will definitely add to this review after I have had a chance to either knit or crochet with it. But as of right now, it is incredible to touch and feel.
