Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant! Lovely soft wool, amazing price and a great range of colours! 10 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good product and friendly staff I like the product and have been shopping long time. Staff are very helpful. 28 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant This yarn is so soft it's ideal for baby's . It knits up well and shows patterns strongly. The colours are vibrant, and of course the price is brilliant in other words all you could want from a good quality yarn 23 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fab yarn I ordered this WI yarn in several colours as it is so soft and crochets up into baby blankets beautifully, you have to be careful cos it can split, but I prefer it to baby yarn as it is softer and comes in more colours 20 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Women's institute soft and silky yarn slate Not impressed with this product. Kept splitting and finished product not as anticipated. 10 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice and soft Nice yarn, very soft and used it a few times, knits up nicely. But is a bit pricey best to get it when there is an offer on. But overall I will be using this yarn again. ☺ 06 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Womens Institute Soft and Silky Yarn I purchased some of this yarn and I am disappointed with it. When knitting, it separates which makes it difficult when trying to find the correct loop. There were a lot of knots in it too. I expect a few but these were every few yards. The finished article was very nice and 'soft and silky' but getting there was the difficulty. If you are willing to put up with the flaws I've mentioned, then the result is good but I wont be buying any more of this yarn. I have given it 3 stars because of the finished garment, otherwise it would have been 1 or 2 at the most. 23 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent This yarn is very good value for money. It's east to knit with and the finished item looks and feels amazing. I have used it to knit many items and it washes really well. I would recommend this yarn to everyone. 21 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 4ply Womens Institute Soft and Silky Yarn Slate I have used this yarn many times for knitting and crochet. I was disappointed with the last balls I bought as despite being the same batch numbers there were differences in the yarn thickness in the balls. 24 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 second lot bought This is the second lot of this wool that I have bought. It is lovely and silky. However, check the tension before knitting as I had to go down a size on the pattern I was using. 16 October 2015
