Wooly and weak

This yarn is very wooly. Good choice for outerwear. Too wooly to touch my skin.
The wool also brok very easily. I had to felt the ends together in the middle of a row several times. My project was small so this seems excessive. I would not recommend this yarn. I am not sure if the wool will soften with wear yet.

Yes, Shelter's a woolly yarn. I've found that it softens if you wet block it, so maybe try that if you haven't already. Because it's woolen spun, it's a more delicate yarn. I know people who've had it break. I'm sorry it wasn't to your liking. Thanks for the review.
