I've purchased a few different Paton's yarns. While there is nothing wrong with this yarn, there is really nothing special about it either. I love that it is Canadian made and the price makes it affordable for projects requiring large yardage. I crocheted a cardigan with the "dark tan". (It was actually a nice chocolate brown....nowhere even close to "tan"...)
Perfect weight yarn for the toys I crochet.
With all the products I have ordered from Yarn Canada I am very impressed. My product is received in a timely fashion and all the yarn is in pristine shape. I look forward to continuing with Yarn Canada.
Great yarn! Nice and soft, and worked perfect for my amigurumi project.
