I enjoyed working with this yarn, I made a sweater for my grandson and it was a very satisfying finished product, It proved to have good body and bounce to the wool with a nice soft finish. I have always been happy with Patons brand yarn and wool.
I love this yarn because it comes in lots of colors, is always reliably the same and is perfect for knitting toys.
