Andean Silk; yeah, neah?

Hello, opinions please! Will the texture of Andean Silk support the lace in the SKB pattern? Would this be an ok substitute yarn? Thanks for your help!

I don't know if that will be good - I just wanted to say good find - I am going to watch these comments and see what other knitters think.

I'm going to be using the same yarn. I think it should work fine. I just received my shipment and the yarn is really soft. I'm making the long sleeve version and think that with the Andean Silk it should be a great, sexy fall knit.

Thanks! I'm ordering it right away! It certainly looks like a great find. Goodee goodee yay!

Definitely do a gauge swatch (or 3)...It looks like I might need to go up to a US8 or even US9 needle with the Andean silk, but it looks like it will have a nice drape.

Thanks for the heads up!
