Put the kettle on and snuggle down to an evening knitting session during a cold and windy winters evening with the fantastic Women’s Institute Soft and Chunky Red Yarn. Here at Hobbycraft we have come together with The Women’s Institute to develop a fantastic range of yarn over the mutual passion and shared desire to provide people with the opportunity to build new skills that we have! This super soft range has been created to offer an anti-pill fibre. The structure and spinning of these fibres mean that the garment surface will continue to look fresh and new even after prolonged usage.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I needed This wool is soft, easy to use and very warm. I'm currently crocheting a blanket with it and couldn't be happier with how its turning out. My only complaint would be that it cannot be machine washed. 10 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft and bouncy wool Lovely colours, would definitely buy again. Good wool to learn with as it does not split. 05 February 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice product Like the feel and the deep colour of this yarn and being chunky it knits up fast. 06 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value Good Quality for an inexpensive yarn and softer than basic Acrylic due to the Merino content. 05 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely Wool Fantastically thick and lovely colours, struggled a little with crocheting it as it unwound slightly while working it but I think a larger hook would have helped (using 6.5mm recommend bigger). 04 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely rich colour The wool has a beautiful rich colour and is very soft. Only concern is that you have to be careful when knitting as the yarn is not woven tightly and splits easily 08 October 2015
