Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Generally pleased with this product Pleased with quality of wool but disappointed to find knots in some of the balls which was unexpected considering price paid. 13 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Quality This wool is both of a lovely quality and beautiful colour. Great for scarves, hats and winter jumpers: chunky and soft. 17 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not my favourite yarn I bought 3 balls of this wool, 2 navy and one grey, to knit hats for my 3 grandsons for Christmas. It is soft and the colours are nice, but this is where it ends for me. It splits easily and twists up when I'm knitting with it, making it hard to work with. I wouldn't buy it again. 21 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helpful Hobbycraft staff I really needed help and staff were so kind and had loads of patience with me. I'm a failed knitter as my last 'effort' was over 30 years ago when I started a sleeveless jumper for my daughter as she began high school and it was still unfinished when she reached the sixth form. Staff are brilliant and I really enjoy shopping at Hobbycraft. 26 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great yarn to knit with loving using this yarn and the colour is brilliant 09 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cool colours and easy to knit My daughter loved the variety of colours and as a novice found this wool easy to knit with. She is knitting hats for friends for Christmas presents 08 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Knitting wool I am enjoying knitting with this but wish there had been more colour choices. 01 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This yarn is wonderful I recently used this yarn to knit a hat and scarf in the school colours of my sons' school. I used the chunky weight in three colours and a rib pattern. W I yarn is new to me and I am happy to say that their reputation for producing quality products remains. It knitted up beautifully and had a lovely rustic finish to it The colour range is current for trends and the finished product is soft and comfortable to wear, particularly important for a hat! I have recommended this yarn to my knitting group. 30 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gorgeous wool, lovely to work with Great for crochet....I brought it because it was on offer 3 for 2, otherwise but pricey 10 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wool review This product was nice wool to knit with however it had 3 knots in it and 4 ends so had a lot of problems with it and a lot of wastage. 05 October 2015
