Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mostly good yarn I have mixed views about this yarn as I have only bought 3 balls. The first one was terrible and was actually in 6 pieces and also terribly knotted. The other 2 were fine and no problem. It was easy to use and worked well. It has a great soft feel and the colour is really nice. I complained about the first ball and in fairness they sent me a gift card refund to compensate me for the problems. Overall I would say it is a good quality yarn and I like it. 22 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely colour, very easy to work with. I really wanted thicker ply, but by using two balls of wool together I got the desired effect. I am Tunisian crochetting a 'Throw' for my leather settee to make it warmer this Winter. 19 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Hobbycraft store The WI wool I bought was lovely to knit with and a reasonable price. The multicoloured wool has made lovely little hats for our hospital neonatal unit babies as it is particularly soft. I am very pleased with the sewing machine bobbins as my machine is 40 years old and I had been having trouble finding some to fit, so a good result all round. 07 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wool I am very happy with my purchase of wool. Good customer service. 05 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality wool The wool is strong, soft and great for making blankets and clothing. There is plenty of choices for colours from vibrant to neutrals. I will be buying more in the future. 23 October 2015
