    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Monte Donegal:

    This yarn is very nice, very soft. Color is beautiful. I haven't used it yet. Bought enough to start a sweater this fall. My first attempt at a sweater! Wish me luck. I wish skeins were larger though. It will need too many joins for my comfort level. Only pilling I could imagine might be from tweedy flecks. I think it would also be great for a nice shawl. I always like to have one close by in case I get a chill while I knit!
    Soft enough, light enough for a baby blanket. Gee, maybe I need to get some more of this. Hope it's on sale!

            I made a sweater with it and it was so nice to work with and so very soft and squishy when done that I bought more of a different color for another sweater.

                  I accidentally ordered worsted weight instead of bulky. I called and the nice lady immediately changed my order, and it was at my door two days later. Very impressed with the order speed and how easy it was to adjust my order. Very friendly employees.

                  I got the last 13 skeins of purple. How beautiful!! It is like a royal purple with highlights.

                  I have it put away for Fall as I am now working on Summer Tees. Highly recommend this product. I will be purchasing more!!!!!!

                            This yarn is really beautiful when worked into a sweater I love the variations of the yarn because it creates a unique color pattern. No one else has a sweater like this unless they knit one for themselves. The yarn feels nice next to the skin no itching issues. I will purchase more of it to make additional sweaters. Thanks for such a great product.
                            Your service and web site are excellent. I will have to come up to The Boston area and see your store also take in a Baseball game maybe something fun to do this summer. Again love your products. Elisabeth O'Donnell
