What to do with this yarn?

So, I just got this yummy yarn from Herrshner's on clearance! Now, I only have one skein and I've never worked with this kind of fiber....

I am now asking you...any ideas?

I have several balls of ribbon yarn like this, I responded to you on the yahoo group as well, I combine this with another yarn, like lion suede or even an acrylic or any yarn really, with a color that matches the ribbon yarn... together they make a beautiful scarf.

Aunt Kathy is right on the mark with her idea! Mix it with other yarns. Knit Lengthwise it will make a spectacular scarf!

Knit a cute bag using another yarn and striping with the ribbon yarn.

I have needle knit and crocheted with it. I havne't tried it on the loom yet but I have a ton so I can.
I can tell you it's very stretchy and it's hard to hide your ends.
I recommend sewing them together if you have the ability and time. And then trimming very close to the seam to hide the ends.
