Crafts, Yarn Patons Silk Bamboo (Moss) / B001GP7SD0
NOTE: This video review was initially created for the Apricot color of this yarn. Since the only difference between the two yarns is the color lot, I felt the same video would be useful for purchasers interested in seeing how easily the yarn knits. If you're interested in seeing this color in contrast to the other Paton varieties, please see the pictures I've posted for this product.

This is a very soft and silky yarn, and would be perfect for colorful detail work or for items meant for soft and sensitive skin, like baby blankets or stuffed animals. The yarn is extremely soft, with just a touch of 'furry' offshoots. It is easy to knit with and does not tend excessively towards separation (no more so than anything else I've worked with, anyway). The yarn feels very lightweight and cool to the touch.
