Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good product and prompt service. Having used this wool before I knew that it was excellent value for money so this latest order was no disappointment. The colour was advertised as 'mixed' which was not the best description for purple with a hint of red but the colour shown on the website was sufficient to make a decision. I had not used the website to order previously - normally I visit my local store - but because I live over twenty miles away I thought t was worthwhile giving it a go. I was very pleased with the simple and straightforward ordering service and the goods arrived by courier very soon after my order was placed. I will certainly order this product again and use the website to order if I cannot get to the store. 26 February 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by W.I. Wool is the way to go.. I recently decided to try my hand at crochet, it's been 40 years since I last tried, so had to learn all over again. The practice ball of wool I had was all wrong, it was great for knitting, but when I tried to crochet with it, I found I was splitting the yarn all the time, and I was just getting frustrated with it all. After buying several different colours of the W.I. Wool, I have come on in leaps and bounds.. I'm actually quite proud of my little self..! I decided to try and make a baby blanket for a friend in the States. I started nearly 2 weeks ago, and I can't put it down.. the wool is so easy to work with, the problem is had splitting the yarn has gone, so I can just go at it full steam. I'm still quite slow, but I'm finding it all quite relaxing, and very enjoyable. "I'll just do an hour or so" quite often turns into 4 or 6 hours, time just flies by, and at this rate, the baby blanket might just turn into a full size throw. I've already seen the W.I. Wool I want for my next project :) 11 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 Excellent value for money This wool is great to use as I am a very new knitter and have no idea what is the best for my lack of expertise. The offer at the time was 3 for 2 which made it an even better buy. 08 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Acrylic yarn for my project I love womens institute products, feels great and great to use. 06 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely. Softer than you'd think. This wool is really nice and we'll priced. It's often on a 3 for 2 as well so even better value. This purple has red and blue flecks and knits up really nicely. It's nice and soft and makes great socks! The other wools in this range are also good. Would recommend it. 08 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not even close to the colour advertised What should have been purple with blue and red flecks, was in fact just royal blue. 22 October 2015
