Love this stuff! Knits fast and so soft!
I use this wool for rug hooking and it works like a charm...so soft!
Nice yarn - just not what I expected
I ordered "roving" (not "roving yarn") and expected to receive fleece worked into long cylinders, but this is in fact a bulky yarn, spun, with a twist. It's not well suited to the project I had in mind but it will be useful for a future project so I have opted to keep it.
This is an incredibly soft and strong yarn, does not pull apart like other bulky 100% yarns do. The colouring, texture, and thickness is consistent along the entire spool. I have bought a total of 10 spools of this yarn now I believe, for various projects and always love the result!! It should be noted that I knit with larger than the reccomended needle size as I like my garments to be slightly stretchy, so I cannot speak to the yarns tension.
A great match!
I was using up my Mom's vintage yarn and thought I had enough for my sweater but I ran short. After a local search I found nothing and so when I found this one at yarncanada.ca I was very hopeful. It's not absolutely exact but close enough and I'm thrilled!! It's a beautiful yarn to work with. I can see myself doing more with different colours.
This is a terrific yarn if you are looking for a heavier weight! Patons( who make this yarn) have a pattern book filled with goodies...great sweaters, hats etc. I chose to make their stunning off white sweater from this years pattern book. It’s a lovely long sweater with a coal collar and lots of twists, cables, and bubbles. My daughter in law is tall and slim and it will be lovely on her. I made the hat to go with it. ( I tried in the hat and am planning to make one for myself. It’s a great style young or older. Thank you Patons!
Thick and soft
I made a cable knit cowl with this yarn. You need to be mindful not to pull hard or knit too toght since it is a roving yarn it will come apart. I am a novice knitter but sure loved knitting the cowls. They rnd up thick and very warm.
Soft and beautiful ! Easy to knit !
Very nice and soft !
Great yarn loved my project
