While the yarn is wonderful to work with, it is a bit itchy on the skin which is quite disappointing. I made three Harry Potter scarves (golden and cranberry stripes) for my grandchildren and all three complain about itching. I wish I had only finished one and let it try them out first before making the other two.
Lovely, easy knitting yarn . Beautiful colours and quick delivery.
Purchased "Rustic Red". Great colour. Nice to work with.
loved the yarn it is all intact with no knots in it.
NIce texture and color....I was very happy that I received the yarn right away in the mail. :)
