Briggs and Little never disappoints. Wonderdul colour and nice firm hand. I am using it for a cardigan and it drapes well.
Fabulous yarn, consistent quality, durable and wonderful to work with. NB: The yarn might feel quite rough when you first handle it, but softens up considerably with washing. A true Canadian classic! I love the intensity of this colourway- it’s a lovely blue hue with a depth of colour to which photos cannot do justice.
This wool is fantastic! I have used it in the past. A warning- the colour that is shown on the website isn't the colour that arrived. I am making mitts for my husband and he is disappointed. I have ordered a different shade of blue hoping to get a shade closer to what he wants.
Stitch definition is an important feature for me - this yarn gives that. I have used it to make an afghan - using the Redheart Basketweave Diamond Throw pattern and some sweaters - using the Lion Brand Heartland Canyon Shrug pattern and the Make and Do Crew Habitat Cardigan pattern. This yarn is easy to work with and is comfortable to wear and use. I also love that it is a made in Canada product.
