Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by bright and silky I haven't completed the item yet so cannot comment on how it will wash, but it is a nice, fine knitting wool. I have found a few knots in each ball which I feel is unacceptable for wool at this price. So far, so fine. 24 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully soft yarn This yarn is soft so probably not suitable for something that needs a more robust yarn. The yarn is also stranded so splits quite easily if you knit without looking! 12 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality wool Beautiful wool knits like s dream.and keeps its shape 19 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by WI Soft & Silky yarn I wanted some 'skin-friendly' yarn for a scarf (some can be a bit 'scratchy') I wanted to crochet for a present for someone and thought I would try this for a change as my usual yarn was unavailable. I'm very pleased I did, it really is 'soft and silky' - you would never know it wasn't cotton? It crocheted up a treat and didn't split as with the brand I previously used. I will happily buy and use this brand again. I also like the choice of colours. A very good price for the product as well! 24 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality in a ball I bought this for a Christmas tree decoration project in crochet. At first glance the colour popped out and then when I went to touch (always have to feel how soft wool is) I was pleasantly surprised. Upon using the wool it was easy to work with and the vibrant colours really stood out. I would definitely use this brand again 28 November 2015
