Vintage Hank is a lovely and shiny wool yarn with 30% bamboo. The bamboo helps give the yarn a soft and light feel, and the wool gives it great durability. Wool is a durable material that rarely needs to be washed and lasts a very long time. This is one of the reasons why some view wool as one of the most sustainable materials.
Vintage Hank comes in hanks of 3.5 ounces and can be used for any type of knitting or crocheting. It’s perfect for crocheting and knitting small animals that need a “woolen” look. And, naturally, it’s great for a nice sweater for yourself, a child, or a doll :) Please take note that the yarn must be wound up before use.
Vintage Hank isn’t just a yarn with sustainable properties, it’s also AZO-certified and, thus, a yarn everyone can feel completely safe to use. An AZO-certificate documents that the yarn has gone through many tests and is approved in accordance with European laws.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 22.HCN.95901). Find more information about the certification at the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

It works up beautifully and is a lovely yarn soft light and easy to crochet. The colors are as shown (soft green, old red, blue, curry, and off-white). There were two major problems in the description one, the weight is very close to worsted (between weight 3 and 4) and the picture shows the yarn as smooth and shiny when it is far fuzzier.
Wow, wow, wow. I have no complaints. Lovely yarn that is soft and non-scratchy. The gray I got is very cool - toned, so keep that in mind if you are warm - toned, as it can wash you out. However, if you have "cool" coloring, it would be very flattefing on you.
A beautiful yarn. It worked up very nicely. I ended up with a warm cozy sweater in beautiful colours. I find it slightly itchy but I think I have very sensitive skin.
Exactly what was pictured, color matched what is pictured. Very excited to use this in combination with a mohair blend on a sweater project!
Please note that it is unplied, meaning it is untwisted. It tends to “bloom” while knitting.
I’m happy with it but I just cast on & knittd a few rows. Lovely colors.
