Nice feeling wool! I used it doubled for 2 felted bags, then single strand, also for felting and both turned out great! It does shrink a lot more than hand spun wool and a couple others I've used, but it works great. Loses about half it's height. Knits up very even and even a bit soft. The single strand felted with a soft, fuzzy finish on sz 10.5 needles, the double strand felted with a weird 'nubbly' texture I can't explain but it looked cool and was VERY thick, about 1/4" or more. Great price, great felting, easy to find, and nice colors.

I love this yarn. I always come back to it for products calling for worsted weight wool. It is soft, dense when felted, and knits even and beautifully. The colors are rich without being too in your face bright. And it just plain feels wonderful in the hand. Knitting with it is a comfort thing for me to relax. May it always exist!

This is one of my favorite felting yarns. Crocheted, the shrinkage factor is about 25-30%, not too much. This yarn comes in nice colors, but to add more character I stripe it with Knit Picks Wool of the Andes.

This yarn has remained soft after softly felting it for some ankle warmers. Beware the extra shrinkage. My ankle warmers aren't completely felted because they would be so small I couldn't put them on! But, I wear them all the time. I like this yarn a lot.

I enjoyed knitting with this yarn: It's very soft considering that it is 100% wool, and comes in a huge array of colors. But I noticed almost immediately that it pills (nothing to be concerned about, of course, if you intend to felt). If you are not felting, I would recommend Cascade 220: Nearly the same price, and better-wearing.
