First time working with roving yarn and I am very pleased with the outcome. The yarn is soft and lovely to work with. Highly recommend
use it all the time and love it!
great for weaving. I use it in almost every weaving I make.
Looks great so far for the cowichan vest I am knitting
Briggs and little wool
Love working with this wool. It works up beautifully
Perfect for me
Have been making Cowichan sweaters for years. This is the yarn needed. I also make hats, socks & mitts. I love working with this yarn although it did take practise.
Best wool ever!
Better than the white buffalo wool I used years ago. Can hardly wait for the Cowichan sweater I’m knitting to be finished!
Warm and lovely
This yarn is sturdier than others have reported. I made a couple mittens and couldn't twist the yarn because I was using small sized needles (4.5mm and 6mm). Twisting strengthens the yarn. Despite not twisting breakage wasn't a problem. I was happy with my mittens.
Cheapest Nice Canadian Wool
I was hesitant to try this since it is more than I like to pay for yarn (super cheapskate) but I'm glad I did. There's just something special about working with Canadian wool, and this is the least expensive option for it I've found. Minus 1 star because of the fragility of the wool since it's unspun. Do not, whatever you do, get it wet or scrub it or try to do anything like dyeing to just the yarn; knit/crochet/weave/etc. it first then once you're done it is as sturdy as can be. Just seriously, do not get it wet before it's made up. Speaking from experience with a very similar yarn from another, more expensive company. It's different from regular run of the mill yarn (pun fully intended) so it takes some trial and error at first to figure out how to use it, but after that it is lovely to work with.
I’m knitting Cowichan sweaters right now for my family and I just love your wool. Also, the price is great. So far, so good.
