Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and cosy I love this wool for making warm winter scarves. I needed 2 balls to make an infinity scarf with a size 10 crochet hook. Will likely be making many more! 15 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So smooth! Wonderful wool that is so easy to work with. I've knitted and crocheted with this and it creates a lovely smooth product. Has a really nice sheen to the wool to - definitely buying again! 05 February 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by WI Soft & Chunky Love this wool, since original purchase I have bought more in 2 different colours. Great to knit with and warm to wear. 10 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to handle This wool worked up really well with no splitting, but not washed it yet 07 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice wool - problems with batch Really nice quality wool. My only problem is that I ordered this online, expecting the same batch. It was only after I finished the project that I noticed that one ball of the twelve i ordered was a different batch. Very frustrating! 05 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value yarn I purchased six balls of this wool to make a couple of hat and scarf sets. The yarn is a lovely thickness and really easy to knit with. There is a lovely stitch definition and even after unravelling due to a pattern disaster the yarn remained in one strand and in perfect condition. The only thing stopping me giving 5 stars is that although I purchased the same dye lot for all of the yarn, one ball had been on the shop floor under bright lights and was a significantly different colour to the other five which had been in the stock room. So I suggest carefully checking the balls against each other to be sure the colours match. I'm definitely going to buy more of this lovely yarn though. 18 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely wool Lovely soft wool but not as thick as the teal wool in the same range which was a shame as used the two colours together. Overall still lovely rich colour & knitted up well. 15 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by In love This wool is lovely and fantastic to work with. Makes crocheting easy. 12 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Yarn inspires to try more patterns I love these yarn... I have made a hat for my son. I am just a beginner but feel very comfortable knitting with this yarn. I must say after using this yarn, I have not gone back to the very cheaper yarns.. I will buy these yarns only and thanks hobby craft for supplying these yarns. I see these yarns, infact most of knitting accessories available only in Hobby craft. Thanks. 02 December 2015
