Estelle Black Estelle Worsted Yarn (4 - Medium) By Estelle
Warm, durable , affordable
Love , love to use black Heritage with a co ordinating Tuffy colour for warm winter work socks that are very durable. Being Canadian produced and affordable is such a plus !!
Good sturdy warm wool
Great for making warm winter hats. Rougher texture, but wears really well. I sent a hat knit in this to my friend in Newfoundland, he loves it.
True to colour with a rich texture
As this is wool, don't expect it to be too soft. But I think this will make very durable rugs!
My go to rughooking wool
Love this wool, so many great colors to choose from. Plus it’s affordable!
Fan of Heritage
I like this wool a lot. It's good quality Canadian wool and it is very affoordable. It is sometimes necessary to wash ahead of knitting as it is very low-processed wool. Good black.
Excellent minimally processed yarn with good colour. Blooms nicely after soaking and blocking. Final knitted product is warm and light. Highly recommend.
Good hardy yarn
This is a natural yarn, not over processed, with a rustic character. But that's part of it's charm, and why I like it. Yes, you might even find the odd plant fibre but after you knit it and give it a good soak, it's appeal wins you over.
Very poorly wound skein
I wouldn't buy another one of these, the skein was such a pain to wind up into a ball getting tangled every full rotation. Not worth the trouble. It'd also really rough and scratchy it's going to need a few washes to soften up.
