Rated 1 out of 5 by Love the colour and feel but unevenly spun I love the colour and feel of this yarn however it is very unevenly spun so therefore does not knit up to an even tension. I have cut out the worst of the faults but obviously this wastes quite a lot of yarn and results in more ends to deal with in the making up process. I pride myself on my even knitting and have received praise for such but it is impossible to get a pleasing finish with this yarn. Overall very disappointed. 26 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely rich colour This is a gorgeous yarn to knit with. It's so soft for pure wool and knits up beautifully. Probably the nicest wool I've ever used. Will definitely buy again. 20 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely shades of colour The quality is very good, lovely colours to choose from. However, the yarn sometimes splits and has to be watched while knitting. 07 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful yarn A beautiful yarn to work with. Unusual to find a yarn in store that is manufactured in the UK. 06 February 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Crocheted well Crochet a neck warmer and a hat it was good to work with. Although I though it was a bit expensive I'm glad I bought 3 so I got one free. 25 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Took long enough X-D Been looking for a burnt/rusty orange for ages, buying online is to much of a risk when you need a very specific colour so when I saw this, huge sigh of relief! The only reason I didn't check Hobbycraft first in my search was because they must only change their range every 12 months or atleast it feels so I didn't think they would have what I needed, just happened to be around and popped in. I would come in more often if they they increased their colour ranges more often but alas, down to the buyers I guess. Well anyway, super happy I managed to find what I needed in the end x)) and it's like any other wool to be honest, nothing special other than its the colour I needed X-D. 18 January 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this yarn for virus shawls Have made several shawls and gloves with this yarn. It's a bit scratchy sometimes but washes beautifully. 10 December 2015
