      Comments about Ashland Bay Multi-Colored Merino Top:

      I spun this into a medium weight yarn for a sweater. I have not knit it up yet, but I cannot wait! The spinning and plying went smoothly. The fiber slipped through my fingers easily. I would definitely buy this again.

        Excellent making thrummed mittens and this yarn was affordable and perfect. The yarn top is super soft and makes the inside of the mitten feel like a little cloud.

              I purchased this wool to use in thrummed mittens, and it's just wonderful. Warm, fluffy, and soft to the touch - my new mittens are not itchy at all. The only problem is that fondling this wool makes me want to learn to spin, and I simply don't have time or space for that LOL.

                Ordered two different colors to ply with solid colors I already had. Actual colors were much darker than they appeared on the website. Disappointed that they are so dark, but will probably still work. Haven't spun it yet but expect it to spin well.

                            I was greatly disappointed to find that Webs shortchanged me nearly 2 oz.! Normally I wouldn't weigh my fiber, but I will now. Customer service did send me the difference.

                                My goal with spinning is to create knitting yarn for hats, fingerless gloves, leg warmers, cowls, scarves, and throws. This top works perfectly for this.

                                Service and delivery comments:

                                When I ordered the merino top I also ordered a cone of mohair which I am still waiting for......I know you didn't charge me for it yet but I just wonder what happened. Also, it is helpful to know via email, when a product has been shipped but that step hasn't happened with my recent orders. Your products always arrive in good condition and delivered promptly except for the one instance I describe here. It is such a pleasure to use your website for my yarn and roving shopping.

                                    I'm very new to spinning (top whorl drop spindle), but this wool is really easy to work with. Needs very little to no pre-draft, and I'm being able to spin it to a very fine 2-ply lace. The colours blend so the final yarn is a more subdued shade than the roving looks originally.

                                        This is the first wool roving I've bought and spun. I'm spinning it on a home-made drop spindle (my first time...) and it's so soft and easy to work with! The colors are beautiful, too!
