Women's Institute Plum Home Grown DK Yarn 100g (783) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very soft I loved the colour of this but when I made a hat on my knitting machine it was quite rough and felt a bit wiry. Wouldn’t buy it again. Odd as other colours from same brand were great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to work with. I thought as this was a bit fuzzy, it would be hard to crochet, but the colour was perfect for what I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable but rough The yarn is good quality, doesn't fray easily and is really durable, but is quite rough, so would not recommend if making something that will go directly on the skin. There are sometimes clumps in the yarn and it's sometimes thinner than the rest of the yarn but it isn't hard to get rid of the clumps so not too fussed about that. Overall great product, just a few things that mean it's not the greatest for clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good wool I bought grey and maroon. I couldn’t understand why the maroon was more expensive than the grey as they are the same make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable and environmental I found this yarn to be very easy to work with it was one of the only balls of yarn I could find which was 100% British wool and affordable! I would recommend this to anyone aiming to be more environmental and economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great wool I brought this wool to make a Twin Set. The wool knits up fantastic and I love the colour and nice to know that I have brought the wool made in the UK.
