I found Yarn Canada on line and I will forever be a committed customer. Excellent Customer service and expedited quickly.
Have used this product many times to make Shetland style sweaters. I have always been pleased with the product.
I bought this chunky wool to knit a poncho for myself. Great colours, nice feel, knitting with Size 10 (American ) needles. But every skein has between 1-3 knots in it from breaks in the wool. That's why I rate it a 3/5 instead of a 4/5.
Great fall colours! I, personally, prefer wool but for those who like this blend it's very soft and practical.
Colours are just as shown in the pictures. Awesome to crochet with!
Absolutely wonderful and works very well with my hooks doesnt drag
The colours in this yarn are Autumn colours, it is simply stunning in a long cowl that I crocheted. Very light and soft and love it. Had many compliments on it.
I absolutely love this weight for hiking socks! It is soft, and easy to work with. I also like that it doesn't split like cheaper yarns do, while you're knitting with it.
