I made a slipover using 5 of the colours. It was lovely to knit with and was great after blocking. Great value for money, super colours, what's not to like?
A nicely shaped ball of the highest quality yarn!
I have been a customer of Trish and Sean for quite a while now. You can read my review of the yarn itself in the 200gm skein (the way I always purchase my yarn from them), as I do not want to be redundant! Now I want to focus on another aspect of this wonderful yarn. I was thrilled when my latest order arrived and I saw the shape of the balls! I live in the States and yarn is either "ball" or oval shaped, not "squared" as these are. This fabulous yarn ravels off of the ball so evenly and nicely-I don't have to tug at it or catch it as it rolls or flops on the floor like our yarn does(yes, my yarn is usually in my knitting bag but sometimes it escapes)! In my opinion, this yarn is wound to perfection and is a delight to work with. It is so good, that I will be purchasing it in this size from now on! Another great product from these excellent yarn merchants - thank you again, Trish and Sean!
