I really like this yarn, I am using it to show off fancy stiches in a sampler afghan with good stich definition. It is soft and seems of high quality for the fantastic price. My only beef is the three dark bluish-green hues that look almost identical.

This yarn is surprisingly soft for a standard wool (as opposed to a merino), and particularly for something so affordable. It isn't soft to the touch per se, but it doesn't give me the pricklies, and I'm very sensitive. I probably wouldn't wear it directly against the skin, but it would be great for a sweater you wear over a shirt or maybe even a camisole. It's much softer than a pricey tweed by a designer-who-shall-remain-nameless Also, it felts beautifully, even the natural. (Some light-colored wools don't felt well.)

This yarn was easy to work with...but I am disappointed in the color differences I have noticed between the website and what I actually purchased, specifically with the grass and blue bonnet colors. Lesson learned, I will buy a color card for this yarn before my next purchase.

Also really like this yarn - have now done a couple of sweaters in it, love the colors (yes get a color card), including one very complicated multi cabled little number in Vogue Knitting from Winter 05 that came out beautiful (in pumpkin). This company has many other good yarns and the price is great - maybe they'll give some of these overpriced(and low yardage/skein)companies a run for their money?

I love this yarn! It felts beautifully and it doesn't cost a fortune to make a project! I haven't had any problems with my color differences. Everything has matched just fine.

This yarn is great for felting, with intense colors. A little too scratchy to wear on the skin, but the price is fantastic. And yes, by all means order a color card. It's only $1.99, and their screen colors tend to be off.

Bought the "town" slipper kit cuz the spats and loafers were so cute but................don't like the way the yarn felted. It was alot fuzzier than other yarns I've felted with (Lion brand and Cascade). The price is wonderful but I'm not sure if I'd use it again.
