Rated 4 out of 5 by from Patons smoothie DK yarn I love this yarn easy to work with giving a lovely finish but does tend to split if not careful but overall it's very nice and I will buy more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to knit with I use lots of this yarn... It's lovely to knit with and has a slight sheen yet feels almost cotton like. I just wish there were more of the colour range available at Hobbycraft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was the colour I was looking for and smooth texture This is a lovely soft light yarn to knit any double knit pattern to. It is 100% acrylic but behaves and looks like cotton when you knit it. Especially lacy or patterned or textured stitches. They will show well but it is lighter than 100% cotton so you don't have the weight, be great for summer patterns. I'm Putting it with white for a stripes & lacy pattern think it would be great with my jeans

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One ball of wool Since I have now been sent an email 3 times asking me to write a review - here I am. What can I say about one ball of wool. I bought it because I thought I would be a ball short on the jumper I'm knitting. But I was wrong - That ball is unnecessary and redundant. I have kept the receipt and hope Hobby craft will give me a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely finish to knitting I am knitting a cable dress in this wool which is looking very smart. However, the wool is splitting a bit so I am having to be very careful

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely soft cotton This wool knitted lovely but crocheting was tricky to start with as it splits easily which was disappointing. But when completed I was very pleased with the result. It was so soft unlike most cottons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not suitable for crochet I purchased this for a crochet project but due to the way the yarn is spun it's not suitable for crochet. The motion of yarn over hook takes the twist out of the yarn causing it to separate into the individual strands as it's s twisted rather than z twisted yarn. But! If you're knitting with it, it's great! It has a lovely cotton-y look to it and the stitch definition is fab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely to knit with This yarn is such a pleasure to knit with. It has great stitch definition and a lovely silky feel. It also drapes very nicely. I really wish that Hobbycraft stocked the full range of colours though!
