I've been using this product since the 1970s, and I find that its quality is still just as consistent as ever. It looks good, feels good and wears well.
This yarn is perfect for so many projects, especially for me, my finger puppets I make for 3 hospital departments in brockville. Also I make socks for family. The colours (variegated) are vibrant and I have not been able to find them in many stores, and thankfully your on-line system saved me from using inferior wool or colours that were not my first-choice.
wonderful yarn, very easy to work with and just the right colours for a little girl blanket. I wished it came in bigger skeins
