      I purchased this yarn because it was one of the only worsted yarns I could find in the color I wanted. The color is exactly what I expected from the picture. It knits up well, but there are some sections of yarn that are a little thicker than others. Although, it doesn't seem that you can see the differences after it's knitted. Also, maybe it's something with the way I knit, but the yarn twists as I'm working. I have to keep stopping to untwist. Luckily, I'm working on circular needs, so I can just hold the yarn ball in the air & let it unwind on its own. But, it's still a nuisance.

        Lamb's Pride is a good value for yarn to weave in Navajo style. It is worsted weight and spun tightly enough. It packs well.

          Comments about Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted:

          I have used Lamb's Pride Worsted for several years because I positively love their colors. It is also actually more of an aran weight than a typical worsted which gives it more strength as well as warmth.

              Using this yarn to knit a hat for my boyfriend. It's a nice thick yarn with good texture. A bit on the fuzzy side, but that's to be expected with a mohair blend. Some people might find it a bit coarse or itchy, but I think it's pretty soft.

                      Loved this yarn! My cast on was a little difficult because it doesn't stretch much, but I was making a brioche hat which may have been the main reason why the cast on was so difficult. The yarn hides mistaked easily but fixing mistakes and knitting backwards was pretty difficult since the yarn tends to split pretty easily. Very warm yarn and made an awesome hat!

                        I purchased this in two colors, purple and grey. The grey was too scratchy, so tossed it into the stash where it will probably permanently reside. Interestingly, the purple was not so stiff and worked up nicely when mixed with another yarn.

                          I own a small art gallery and make hats, scarfs etc to sell in the summer to tourists. I design and knit/crochet around 150+ items a year to sell. This product sells well because it is beautifully dyed, knits up neatly and has a beautiful natural shine to the finished item. It is wonderfully warm for Alaskan winters.

                            This is my all time favorite felting yarn. It felts predictably, consistently, and is easy to control the felting. I love the texture of this yarn, both when working and the finished product. The felt does not feel coarse or stiff, and the mohair gives a beautiful soft halo to the finished piece.

                            This yarn is also easy and soft to work with. It makes me happy to think about working on a project with Lamb's Pride. The yarn is super forgiving, feels great on my fingers, and the colors are always gorgeous and very well dyed.

                            My neighborhood knit shop does not carry Brown Sheep yarns, sadly. I've tried to "get off the stuff," but I am clearly a Lamb's Pride addict. Any time I go into a knit shop, I immediately look to see if they carry lamb's pride and find myself oohing and aahing over the colors of the season and thinking of new projects and ideas.
