Beautiful soft yarn with a really silky drape that looks amazing knitted

Shari Navetta
This yarn is luxurious!

I live in the US. On a trip to Ireland I bought this yarn in the Tiffany blue color and one skein which was left of Eden. It is my favorite yarn that I own! It is so soft and silky. I was always upset that they didn’t have more of the Eden. About 6 months later, I looked on their website and they had one left! I paid the extra shipping and just love it!!! If you are on the fence, don’t be. Totally worth the money and the shipping. Enjoy!
