I've used Briggs and Little for a couple of blankets in my house and I love how it knits up! I also love that it's a Canadian company, and a good price. The colours don't always look accurate in the photos online, but are nonetheless always gorgeous in person. I especially love this fawn colour - it's a tiny bit pink and absolutely gorgeous in the blanket I'm making.
I love Briggs & Little yarns. I've made shawls, hats, socks, and sweaters with them. Is there anyway to get a sample of all the colors I wonder. Colors manifested on my computer screen do not always reflect the material. I'd be willing to pay a small sum for such service.
Always love using Briggs and little for rug hooking! Great colours and consistency with all of their products.
I have just finished an Aran Sweater, and very pleased with it, the 100% wool is not at all hair as some wools can be.
