Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is beautiful to work with I can highly recommend this product. I have used various colours and different gauges of yarn. All are beautiful to work with and wash and wear well 02 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely soft yarn easy to work with over your fingers..smooth...all stitches are clear individual texture 24 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my project This yarn is perfect for the baby blanket that I'm crocheting, can be used for either boys or girls baby blanket, beautiful colour and extremely soft 26 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely soft yarn really suitable for baby outfits. Has a tendency to split when crocheting and knitting but final effect is good. I loved the softness of this product and its lustre. Made a lovely knitted baby jacket in stocking stitch with bootees in garter stitch and a crocheted hat and all adapted well to the various textures I was aiming to achieve. The splitting was the only downside. I would use again! 28 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lovely Wool This wool comes in lovely shades, it soft on the skin and washes well. The only flaw is that it can be liable to split, and if like me you don't look at your knitting all the time, it can be annoying. 15 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely, soft wool, great for toys. Can be stringy if you aren't careful I bought this great wool for a crochet toy project, it comes in wonderful bright vibrant colours so perfect for my needs. The finished project is lovely but when working the yarn it can unwind slightly making it string like at times. Also the lovely silky feel of the wool creates issues with knots unravelling - so have to learn so some nice neat tight knot tieing tecniques. 06 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 No Substance As an experienced knitter of many years. I found this wool to be quite lifeless and it seemed to split easily when being knitted. The completed item also lacked substance and no bounce on washing it went wide and out of shape. It also grew by three sizes. I won't be buying this wool again sorry. 08 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful colour This yarn comes in several lovely colours and although acrylic has a soft luxurious feel. Perhaps better for knitting than crochet. 11 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good economy yarn Used this yarn before and always been happy with it. Be careful when ordering online. Dye lots cannot be guaranteed, so I've now found out and in this instance I recieved differing shades which involved a costly trip to nearest shop to rectify! 20 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality This yarn is soft, yet strong. I have only used the yellow, but am looking forward to using the blue. 14 December 2014
