Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely sheen I was reluctant to buy this wool initially because I normally buy pure wool or at least a high percentage. I was attracted by the '3 for 2' offer which has now been removed from other yarns. The yarn appears to be a better quality than most acrylics and has a great sheen which accentuates the stitches and also has the benefits of being machine washable. I could become a convert to the WI yarns!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft yarn that doesn't split easily Despite my Gran's insistence that this isn't a suitable colour for a baby blanket this yarn is knitting up into a lovely, soft lace pattern. I haven't noticed any of the splitting that occurs with some yarns when contorting them for a decrease (that might be my technique more than a quality of these other yarns).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully soft and great colour As a relative beginner to knitting and crocheting, I've tried quite a few different brands for my projects but I always come back to the Women's Institute ones - the colours are beautiful and the yarn so easy to work with. They also feel great, so soft to the touch so are perfect for cushion covers, blankets and the like. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WI yarn is so soft! First time using WI yarn and couldn't believe how soft it was for the price! I'm hooked and have already purchased more for another project. I've even been able to use from the centre with virtually no yarn vomit. Very impressed. Good value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This wool was a lovely colour I used this to crochet a blanket for my mum, it's lovely wool to use as it didn't split. The blanket looked beautiful in this colour and it was lovely and soft

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft Aran wool Very soft to knit with only comment is it sheds fibres when knitting. Well worth the money especially when on offer 3 for 2 price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous yarn This aran weight yarn is really lovely. It is very soft and cuddly, and has a bit of a sheen to it. It crochets up beautifully and is good to work with. Very good value, especially when on 3 for 2! Have bought most of the colours...I would definitely recommend it.
