Nice to knit with
I went out on a limb buying this as I've never used it before and I am very picky with the feel of wool. This wool is so nice and soft while still having a beautiful classic look to it. I like this line for all the nice heathered colours, I think it gives more dimension to the knit.
I have not started the project that I ordered the yarn for, but it is lovely to the touch and more luxurious than the photo prepared me for. Thanks for the licorice sucker, too - my favourite flavour!
I've made three sweaters so far. The largest one took 8 skeins and it was xxL for my skateboarder son. Smaller woman's sweater was only 6. Goes a long way.
This yarn is great to work with, neither splits nor tangles, and is lovely. I would buy it again, and I would recommend it. Even though it is somewhat expensive per ball, the generous yardage makes it a “good deal” especially considering the high quality. I was half way through the back of a medium sweater before I used up a single ball!
such a beautiful yarn to work with and the end results are amazing been knitting fo many years and this product is a delight,i made two sweaters for my husband and my picky son wants one ,highly recommend this product
