First, the good stuff: This yarn is beautiful, works up nicely, and is fairly soft. The colors are vibrant, the dye job is even, and the colors are even prettier in person!
Some additional considerations: Although it is soft, it is also a tad scratchy (it is wool, after all). Second, it twists up a lot. If I knit for ten minutes, I'll have to untwist it from the skein end or the working yarn will be tightly twisted. I've never had this issue with yarn before, but it may be my knitting style; I noticed it happened less often when I switched to continental. Part of me thinks I ought to remove a star for these two things, but they're minor considerations (and since it is 100% wool, it is to be expected). I love this yarn. Great for warm, bulky hats!
LOVE this yarn. it's very soft for wool, sheds a bit with the first few wearings, but that is to expected with this type of yarn. It is warm and comfortable to wear. As a side note, the sweater I made was a teensy bit too large for me, and kept falling off of my shoulders. i put it in a cold rinse/spin cycle in my washer, then dried it in 5 minute increments (20 mins total for me). It didnt felt, (although I doubt I could frog it at this point if I tried!) And is love it even more! It made it softer, and put an end to the shedding!
This is a 100% wool, roving-style yarn, and you can really tell. There's a very 'rustic' feel to it, but I kinda love that. The colours are beautiful and saturated. It has that thick-and-thin quality you expect from roving-style, but it's not as extreme as I was expecting (the width of the yarn stays pretty consistent throughout the skein). It's probably a bit rough for something worn against the skin, but I love it for house-wares and similar items.
Snowstorm is easy to work with and perfect for felting. I made the Christmas potholders with bubbles. This roving style yarn has a soft feel and it wasn’t scratchy to work with. The color saturation is gorgeous, and I look forward to buying more colors to make felted spring colored chair pads.
You can never be sure what the yarn you ordered online is like. But once again Hobbii has provided a beautiful pure wool yarn. The colour is just what I wanted, the feel is beautiful and the price amazing. I will be ordering more when my hiatus is over.
