    Beautiful wool for weaving

      • Found a few knots

      Best Uses

        Comments about 2/8 Wool Mill End:

        I wove a twin size blanket using this wool and it turned out beautiful. It's quite soft after washing and after two months of regular use it's not pilling at all. I did run across a few knots here and there off the cone, but nothing that couldn't be worked around for this price and quality.

        Good for knitting too!

        Comments about 2/8 Wool Mill End:

        I knit a lovely fingering weight sweater with this yarn - the lovely Slow Line cardigan. The yarn is springy but soft enough for skin, and blocks well.

        It does pill a bit because of the softness, but a sweater shaver is your friend.

        For the price, a great deal, and nice to not have to weave any ends in.

        I bought this yarn to use with my newly purchased knitting machine. It has been great: easy to work with, good machine knitting weight, nice drape. It would also make a wonderful hand knitted lace piece.

          Comments about 2/8 Wool Mill End:

          I like getting yarn on a cone. It makes doing a project easier if I know I have enough yarn to complete it without keeping tract of where I put the 'other' skeins.

              I'm a new weaver who had only worked with wool once before on the loom. Didn't stop me from buying 12 cones. Five projects later, I still enjoy weaving with it and wish I had bought more when all the colors were available.
