I bought this yarn after I finished my previous project that was made with acrylic yarn. This yarn for a special cardigan was wonderful to knit with. It made me smile with pleasure as the article was knitted. It washed well as advertised and dried without stretching or losing its shape. I will be buying more of this yarn. I think I deserve a sweater for me!
Love this yarn. I knit socks and wool is best to keep your feet wam and dry. But regular wool needs to be hand washed and hung to dry. This yarn is fabulous. Washes in the regular cold load and goes in the dryer too.
I am currently making a badger from Susie John's book" Knitted Woodland Creatures." This yarn is nice and soft yet sturdy and perfect for my needs. It would probably do well as a sock yarn as well. Have not found any faults i( ie wool ends tied together) in the balls so far. Good quality for the money
