Very soft and easy to work with yarn.
Easy to knit with, colour shading is beautiful. It was recommended as an alternative for the yarn suggested in my pattern. Would definitely buy this yarn again.
Knit up beautifully and with a cozy lofty texture, however the number of knots was annoying. Purchased 10 balls and 5 had at least one knot. One ball had three knots.
I found it easy to work with. Would buy it again.
Have used this product several times to make Shetland Style sweaters. Have always been pleased with this product.
I really like the yarn & the colours are lovely. However out of the 8 balls I bought there wasn't one without at least one knot tied in the yarn. One ball had 3 tied in it in just the first 2 inches of my kntting. I expect this in poorer quality yarn but am disappointed to find it in Patons
