I'm pretty new to wool-blend yarns (I learnt to crochet on acrylic, and mostly use cotton now), and this is a great transition. I like the texture, its a bit airy and light, yet holds warmth very well. the worsted weight size makes it fast to work up. it's a single ply of yarn, relatively tightly spun so it doesn't feel like roving as much as other single ply yarn, but it does tend to felt itself as you work, which can make it hard to frog. it's surprisingly soft for such a well priced wool yarn, i'm very happy. The dark raspberry color is gorgeous, it's a bright midtone pink, exactly what I hope for from a "raspberry' color, with a rainbow of tweed speckles. most of the speckles are well integrated and make for a cohesive yarn, but i do lose a couple on each skein. overall, great yarn, will buy again
The only cons to this yarn is that it is easily breakable, I wouldn't recommend it for clothing intend to be worn frequently. That being said, it's GORGEOUS! I used it to make decorative pumpkins for fall and I'm so happy with how it turned out. It's not the cheapest of yarns, but I was making the pumpkins as gifts and this yarn was perfect. The pumpkins looked like quality, glamorous decor rather than toys and that's exactly what I was going for. Everyone that received them loved it! So if you're looking for a stunning, rustic type of yarn for decor I couldn't recommend this enough!
I used this yarn for the first time yesterday in the shade Geranium to crochet a twisted ear warmer and it turned out beautifully! It’s so warm, soft, and one skein was the PERFECT amount to make the headband! What I rolled up after was about the size of a ping pong ball. It is a roving style yarn which means it’s a little more delicate but the only time that was an issue for me was when I finish sewing the twist together at the end. Now that I know to be more gentle it shouldn’t be an issue in the future when I make more, because I DEFINITELY will be using this more!
I don't work with animal fiber or blends very often so I was worried about snagging and fraying. However, this yarn worked up easily and beautifully! I didn't encounter any issues making a golf cap for my husband. I bought autumn maple (19). It didn't look like much before it was worked up, but once I started crocheting, the colors became so rich and vibrant that it was like night and day. If I find a project that could use a wool or wool blend, I'll definitely buy this again!
I really love this yarn! I'm surprised by how soft it is and it's very easy to work with. It's has a great texture, too. I'm working on a sweater with it now and I wasn't sure how it would look with the variation in the thickness of the yarn but the sweater is coming along beautifully. The yarn texture only makes the sweater more visually appealing. I bought the black and geranium for an 80s look and it's going to look totally rad when I'm finished!
