Works up well, colour good for sock monkey patterns
This was such a nice wool to work with. I am very happy.
I love this product. I made a beautiful scarf!
Soft and works up nicely.
This yarn was great to knit with. It work up fast and my project turned out well
Great yarn to knit with, knits up fast and items always look great.
I used this wool for a blanket that I crochet, it is not as soft as I thought it would be but looked so nice when I was done!
Very pleased with this wool. It is thick and sturdy and I love the oatmeal colouring! Find it very easy to work with!
I am crocheting boots with this wool and it has been great. There were some errors in the pattern I am using so I have had to unravel a bunch of times and the yarn held up really well: no snagging or tangling. It is not as soft as some other yarns - but because this is for booties I think it is better because it's a bit stiffer which helps them keep their shape. And don't get me wrong: it's still plenty soft. But I have worked with softer. So on a soft rating I would give it a 4/5.
