Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely feeling yarn I am really enjoying crocheting with this yarn. It's definitely soft and silky and is giving a beautiful feel to my work. As it's 4 ply it can be a little frustrating when I am mid stitch and I either pick up a strand from the stitch below or leave a strand behind and have to re do but I'm persevering as it's giving such a nice finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully soft and great colour As a relative beginner to knitting and crocheting, I've tried quite a few different brands for my projects but I always come back to the Women's Institute ones - the colours are beautiful and the yarn so easy to work with. They also feel great, so soft to the touch so are perfect for cushion covers, blankets and the like. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! This is a lovely soft yarn, the slate colour is just right, not to grey and not too blue. Very happy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this yarn! It's very soft to work with but comes together with a satisfying strength. I love this colour, slate, and have used it on many projects. I've used other colours in this range and they are all lovely to knit or crochet with.
