I received this yarn in exchange for my review. As always, all opinions are entirely my own.
The base for this beautiful yarn is Expressions Fiber Art's signature, custom made, sock yarn. The colorway is Celestial, which has silvery gray mingling with soft black, cool pink, and purple. It's an all around beautiful yarn.

After much deliberation I settled on knitting the Mont Royal Hat. I thought that this pattern would be a fun knit and would look nice with the colors of the yarn. So far this yarn is a dream to knit. It doesn't fray, split, or fuzz -- even with multiple froggings. (I might have had a difficult time joining without twisting . . . Sigh. Totally not the yarn's fault.) The dye is great, none of it has come off on my hands. (Which I have had happen with other hand-dyed yarns. Not fun.)
