I made a sweater with this yarn and regretted the choice pretty quickly. I've never had such trouble casting on, with the yarn constantly twisting. In the end, I casted on with much larger needles and pulled the yarn very tight. The sweater came out with a rustic look, since every stitch that isn't exactly like the others looks really obvious, and there were a few spots where the yarn got thicker or thinner. I also find it pretty itchy on my skin, so will have to wear something under the pullover sweater.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Woodland:

This is a nice yarn but not next to skin wear. I haven't washed it yet so maybe it will soften... I really liked the idea of using nettles and think the yarn is pretty. Someone told me they thought the yarn got too thin in areas but I haven't had that experience at all. I've enjoyed working with it. I'm making a very detailed sweater for my daughter and it is showing the details nicely.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Woodland:

This is such a nice yarn. Easy to knit up. I used a glove pattern that was beautiful, but would use smaller needles next time. It tended to stretch......but I think it was the pattern. Colors are so rich.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Woodland:

I tend to gravitate to soft yarn so this one is a little different for me. The feel is very fibrous and rustic, with varied thickness. I assume that is part of the use of nettles with the wool, nice concept. The absorption of color is very heathered, adding to the rustic appearance. Currently knitting up a scarf with the yarn and seems very appropriate for that use.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Woodland:

        I was excited to try this product with nettles. The color looked like it would be a nice shade for the shawl I am making with leaves at the bottom. Unfortunately, the actual color is very bad for my skin tone and will have to be gifted to someone else. I think that the wool and the nettles take the dye differently creating a cool effect that is just looking ugly to me with this brown color, but it is actually a good idea. The yarn is super scratchy. I'm hoping that it will get better with washing. It seems to be getting somewhat softer from being carried around in the knitting bag.

            This knits up beautifully. It's much softer than I thought it would be so will make a scarf to match the hat. I'm on skein four and have only found one knot that needed to be cut out.

                    This product is a combination of wool and nettles and has an interesting texture. It has some spring, like normal wool, but the nettles take to the dye differently. This isn't a soft yarn but it's not overly scratchy. I purchased this wool for a specific project which called for it and while it knits up well correcting mistakes is a bit irksome because it felts up a bit when ripping back.
