See my full review under "Medium Blue" of this yarn. Pleasure to knit with, one of my all-time favourites. My 1976 yoke sweater knit with this yarn is still in use and looking good. Soft, lofty and warm, it is my first choice for winter wear. Only wish there had been more colours available when I ordered. Yarn Canada's service was excellent and super fast.
I several years ago I made several sweaters using a similar tweed yard. The extra bits of colour really add to the look of a completed project especially when using stocking stitch.
Really soft yarn. I used it for a scarf and it's very warm. There were a few knots but for my pattern, it wasn't an issue
This is absolutely lovely wool and so nice to work with. I'm very glad to have discovered YarnCanada.ca
