This wool knits up well. The colour is beautiful. I did have one skein with a knot in it - disappointed with that. It also seems scratchy. I'm hoping the scratchiness will wash out. I would like to know the difference between the Regal line and the Heritage line (maybe a more detailed explanation of your website). Great value.
Love the colour.
I only like to purchase Canadian made yarn. Having once lived down the road from Briggs & Little in NB, I'm so happy to know that I can continue to get their beautiful woolen yarns here in BC in a quick and easy way. And their full color range is availble too!
Skeins are weight stated, neat and easy to wind. Colour was as it appearred. Achieved the stated gauge easily. Yarn is rustic with quite a bit of plant matter, most of which is easy to remove as you go. I kept a pair of tweezers nearby to help with this. Not suitable for garments which will be in direct skin contact as most people would find it too itchy. Suits garments that require some structure. I am using it for the Mayhem Cardigan DK by asatricosa on Ravelry. I own another sweater which I believe is made of this yarn which is still in great shape after 40 years! I will purchase this product again.
This was good quality yarn for the price. Enjoyable to knit for everyday garments. Yarn Canada also provided very quick shipping. Would definitely purchase again!
All colors of Briggs &Little Regal yarns are great. The bleached white and natural white take dyes beautifully. They also felt well. As you knit you will even come across bits of straw, very natural and manger like. I have used them for years to design and knit a line of vintage style Christmas stockings which I will be adding to my Etsy website, Shoofly NeedleArt Designs. I am very impressed with this yarn and it is Canadian. I prefer to use Canadian products in my designs wherever I can.
