Love this yarn Works up well
Love this wool, 20% wool and 80% acrylic makes this wool wonderful to machine wash and dry
This is a great yarn to work with.
Happy with this yarn. I am crocheting an afghan with it.
Easy to knit with, nice texture, splits easily and will pill eventually when washed but pills can be removed.
I bought Wool-Ease (the lightest weight) to make a 'Hudson Bay' baby blanket. Great range of colours. Yarn is soft and easy to knit, splits easily and I suspect will pull easily in the wash. I am going to try washing in a mesh bag.
