4.5 Stars4.5 / 5
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Chunky, soft, great I was looking for a quick, chunky knit for a snood for my little boy. He chose this yarn because he liked the light blue pastel colour and found it soft enough. Knits easily and does feel reasonably soft. I believe this is a mixture of merino and synthetic fibers, perhaps more on the natural wool side. The only reason why this is a 4 star and not a 5 star is that, when knitted, loses some of its softness. I found the overall snood - although it shows the pattern beautifully - is a bit heavy for a 9 year old and not light enough. Perfect for an adult, though. 16 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent value Good quality wool very soft a pleasure to use lots of colours to choose from 14 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent yarn I am very pleased with this yarn. It is lovely to crochet with. I bought on on 3 for 2 offer so I found it very affordable too. 13 February 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing I was pleased with the quick delivery of this wool. The colour was slightly darker than I expected , but not an issue. The yarn is soft to the touch and looks lovely knitted up. However, the reason I only gave 3 stars is because the wool was twisting tightly, which meant I couldn't get a steady flow to my knitting for having to stop and unravel each length of yarn to straighten it out to knit with. Quite annoying. 11 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good The wool was very good and thick and I hope it will make a warm jumper or scarf 08 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely soft wool I am knitting a dinosaur with this blue and a cream wool. So far the body and two legs are finished. It is not the same wool as recommended in the book but is knitting to the same scale and the colour is almost identical. 06 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely wool The wool is lovely and soft. The Rudolf free pattern however was wrong, it said three balls of main colour and I ended up using seven, so I was out of pocket. 27 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This wool is lovely and sofy and makes a great scarf Lovely and soft, Grows very quick. Makes a lovely scarf for a present. 02 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very soft Beautiful wool to knit with. I made a chunky baby blanket. It looks lovely and knitted up really fast 17 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by not satisfied with this wool I do not like this wool because of having to use extra large knitting needles.The size of the knitting needles are UK 00 as this effects my hands as I suffer from arthritis. I find knitting helps my arthritis. But I find using bigger needles makes my hands go stiffer then they normally are. i do like the wool but its just the size of the knitting needles. 13 October 2015
