The yarn is for a sweater for a young man. The colour is true, and the yarn is high quality. I'm totally satisfied.
Paton’s, a reliable name in yarns, has made this classic wool available at a reasonable price for a quality wool yarn. The rich dark gray colour is just right for a young man who likes warm, classic clothes. Being a Superwash product wiil ensure a long life, and bright colour for this garment, a long sleeved V-neck sweater.
I am currently making a badger from Susie John's book" Knitted Woodland Creatures." This yarn is nice and soft yet sturdy and perfect for my needs. It would probably do well as a sock yarn as well. Have not found any faults i( ie wool ends tied together) in the balls so far. Good quality for the money
