I have always loved this yarn and have made many garments with it over the years. It's soft, easy to work with and can be machine washed with care. It has a nice range of classic colours which compliment each other very well. . If a 13 year old wants to live in a sweater made form this yarn, it's definitely a winner!
This yarn is great to work with
I always enjoy working with this yarn and the resulting fabric is always pleasant to wear.
easy to knit with and feels nice in your hands while knitting
Very pretty yarn, easy to knit with, easy to handle, knits up fast
nice to use but threads do separate at times. Would use again. colour is nice and stiches easy to see
Used to use Shetland Chunky in the old "Fair Isle " days. Just as great as ever!
