Love this yarn. Looks good, feels good and easy to work with. Such a beautiful brown.
I like this yarn because of the flecks of colour in it.
Used this wool for a cable sweater for a child, which looks great. It reminds me of the vintage tweed look. My only disappointment is that I didn’t buy a different colour as well.
So far, this is easy to work wih. The brown is a warm chocolate. And the flecksare green yellow and orange. Perfect for the sweater I'm making!
The yarn looks great and knits up well.
Yarn very soft, knits up nicely, knits up fast Very easy to handle,
Nice rich tones, the texture is thick and of good quality,and easy to work with.
