My Experience

Where I got it: I bought it at my LYS, Beehive.

Needles I used: Hiya Hiya sharps US 5/3.75 mm

Blocked Gauge I got: 19 sts/36 rows = 4"/10 cm

My Thoughts: Well I got a way snugger gauge than recommended, so I think I should try again with a larger needle to get the fabric the yarn co. intended, but I really like it dense too. It's so fluid and cool to the touch. It didn't bother my hands to knit with it, possibly because it's just so slippery and soft. 

What I might design with it: I'd love a big lace shawl out of this, but I'm also dying to knit Deschaine by Leila Raabe.

Where you can get some: The Quince & Co. website or try your LYS.
