Many years ago Shetland Chunky was my favourite yarn to use. I made fair isle sweaters and socks. Shetland Ragg was a favourite sock yarn. My son needed some new socks so I went back to SC. I love the feel when you knit with it and the fact it has wool will last a long time. I bought extra and will be making some mitts and more socks!
This yarn will produce garments and accessories that will last many years.
This wool is very soft and knits up beautifully. Just what I was looking for. Will use again in the future.
A lovely yarn to work with. My project is a shawl and it is the perfect weight for this.
I have been using shetland chunky for many years and am still a fan of this yarn
Really love the yarn. It works up so beautifully and looks quite elegant
A beautiful yarn and very easy to work with. So soft and elegant looking
This is a very nice yarn to work with. I've used it several times in the past but this is the first skein that has had a join in it. It actually had 2 joins about 2 metres apart. The finished garment looks very nice.
I ran out of yarn making a sweater. I went back to the shop I got the yarn from and they no longer stocked it. I was so thrilled I could order it online and it matched perfectly! Showed up in 2 days! Love it.
