Good strong wool, not too scratchy. Delivery was prompt and free, my favorite price.
I love the heather shades and for the right project the coarseness is a plus not a minus. I recommend washing project with Eucalan or other lanolin based soap to soften it. Made a sweater/ jacket 10+ years ago and even though I wear it often it still looks like it was just made.
I only like to purchase Canadian made yarn. Having once lived down the road from Briggs & Little in NB, I'm so happy to know that I can continue to get their beautiful woolen yarns here in BC in a quick and easy way. And their full color range is availble too!
The yarn is a bit coarse with some vegetable matter but so far, I am very happy with how it knits up. I am using a cable pattern so I wanted yarn that was a bit “stiff” to show the cables yet soft enough to wear. My project is not a next-to-the-skin garment so I am not too worried. I sampled and the sample soften quite a bit with washing but whether it is soft enough for next to skin I can’t say.
Very good value. Website picture has accurate colour . Knits up really well. No knots, separation. Recommended. Haven't given it 5 stars as haven't finished my sweater yet so haven't laundered product yet.
