        Comments about Bristol Yarn Gallery Somerset:

        I made a baby sweater from this. The yarn gives beautiful stitch definition, feels wonderful in the hands. When I join yarn ends I use a German join and this yarn has a slightly loose twist so the ends did not stay tucked in as well as I would have liked.

                    I bought this in the watermelon color and it is scrumptious enough to eat. This yarn drapes beautifully and has a gorgeous sheen. I love the selection of rich colors as well. I will certainly buy again.

                      I knitted a short-sleeve sweater in the green. Although it is multi-stranded, did not split. The cotton/silk blend is soft and nice to knit. I waited until I had washed and worn the sweater a couple times. It has so far been durable and I hope to wear this for a while.
