I live in Australia and was very excited to find 4 balls of Filatura di Crosa Superior in teal available on Jannettes Rare Yarns website. The service was excellent and emails were responded to promptly. I am delighted with the beautiful yarn; I'm making a small poncho /cape. It drapes beautifully and the colour is stunning. Very, very happy with my decision.
Beautiful yarn, competitive pricing, excellent packaging. Wonderful website! thank you
Filatura di Crosa Superior is an exquisitely soft and delicate yarn, perfect for the kind of lace shawls that I make. The specific blend of silk, cashmere and wool provides a very slight haze without the harsher feel that many mohair combinations offer.The range of colours is spectacular, but don't be fooled by the samples in the photos. I took a chance and purchased the teal, even though it appears more turquoise in tone on my screen and was pleasantly surprised to find it a genuine deep teal.As for the price and service, the price was the lowest of all in my search, and the order arrived within a few days, and duty free. All in all, my experience with Janettes Rare Yarns has been five star!
