The jury is out.

I am not sure I really like the texture of this yarn. It is rougher than I might have liked . I am knitting the Werkender sweater by Andrea Mowrey. It might be the color- Thistle- I don’t know. I will keep going, but I am not sure I like it.

Fair enough! This yarn can take a little getting used to, but I'm going to bet that when it's washed and blocked that you really love it. You'll have to let us know. Thanks for your review! -Laura

Would have loved an option to have the yarn wound

I'm glad you liked the yarn! If, in the future, you'd like your order wound, please leave a note in the notes section of your checkout or shoot us an email. Thanks for your review!

Lots of character

Some of the best yarn I’ve used. It costs a bit more but the texture is amazing. It weaves into a fabric like material and is soft and cozy. I love the density and how it holds its shape. Not drapey at all.

I'm so glad you like your yarn! It's one of our favorites as well. Thanks for the review! -Laura
