Love this yarn and I especially love the 'Gray Heather' colour way. The subtle colours (eg. green and lilac) really enhances the overall effect giving me a beautiful sweater.
I'm very pleased with the colour. Once this wool is given a gentle wash it becomes soft. It's going to make a cozy vest for my husband. Just right for our west coast climate.
Nice "rustic" yarn, very good value for us Canadians! I gave it 4 stars not 5 because the colour isn't blue as in the picture, it's green-grey. I wonder if the blue tone wasn't colorfast. Still great yarn!
I can't wait to use this in my next Fair Isle knitting project.
Despite the 'Grey Heather' description, it is as pictured: dark teal green, not grey. Should have believed my eyes. Will keep it since it is to make hats & mitts for charity; glad I was not counting too much on it being grey.
I like this yarn, it is very good to work with it. I would call this colour Green Heather since there is not much Grey in it.
Great yardage, beautiful colours and a great twist for cables. I love Briggs and Little.
