Womens Institute Soft and Silky Yarn Cream is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joy to crochet with I use this wool to crochet blankets and throws for the moment. It has a nice shade and material is really pleasant for touch and good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed with this yarn I bought this yarn to finish a project that I had started with yarn I had bought maybe a year ago. I knew there was likely to be a difference in shade but I was not happy to find the yarn much thicker. So much so that I had to go down a hook size after finding the front of the work much wider than the back! It also splits terribly - so much so that I returned the other two balls I had bought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's good value life the money but never in stock! I started project and wasn't sure how much I need, I needed order 3 more online as my local store never had any in store in stock past 3 weeks checked every day nearly..... disappointing as turns out now I need more and now it's same story and will have to order online waste my money again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality yarn I am reluctant to buy acrylic yarn for my projects. But these yarns were beautiful to work with. I had to use a smaller hook size to get a neat end product though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You have to love this yarn! I love this yarn. This cream is so soft and yummy you could almost pour it over ice cream. It's a pleasure to use with its soft strength. You'd think a yarn at this price would feel cheap with no weight. But it knits and crochets with a quality finish. My only slight criticism is that you can get a small tuft of fibre occasionally. These I have gently picked out leaving a perfect thread.
