Women's Institute Plum Soft and Smooth Aran 400g is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soft Aran Have purchased this wool in different colours many times and have always been very happy with results. Unfortunately this time there was so many knots in the wool that had to be taken apart and consequently many more joins to be sewn in. Quite a large amount of wool lost because of this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super soft Super soft wool, made a lovely infinity scarf. Just wish they did it in smaller balls too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's ok I love the colour although it's not the smoothest yarn to work with, on the other hand the end result is beautiful and very warm. I made crochet Celtic waves and cable scarf with ear warmers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and texture Love this colour, and the wool feels so good when crocheted. Not sure what to use this particular ball for yet but I've used the same in other colours to make blankets and small toys as baby gifts and they have been very well-received!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely wool to knit with a few problems This wool is easy to knit with. I used a cable pattern for my 8 year old granddaughter. The colour is on trend for this Autumn & Winter but the ball is 400 gms and so big it starts to unravel and knot when used. I had to resort to winding smaller balls from it. The other problem is that there are no smaller balls of this wool to buy if you need more than 400 and less than 800gms making it expensive to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This wool is really soft This wool is really soft and knits beautifully. The large ball size is great and the price represents really good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and comfy This yarn, which I’ve used for multiple projects, is incredibly soft. There’s enough elasticity to create ribbing, but doesn’t lose it’s shape and over stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality wool. Really good rice especially on the 3 for 2. Knits up beautifully. Have knitted with this wool so many times now and will continue to do so.
