    This yarn is described as "Super Bulky" ... Its not super bulky... it is more like Aran weight, Bulky at best, but no where NEAR super bulky. I needed super bulky yarn for a sweater I was working on, and was quite suprised when this showed up and was SO thin compaired to all other super bulky yarn I have ever ordered. Other than the weight being completely off, and me having to switch to a different sweater pattern to accomodate the thinner yarn, the yarn was soft (with some prickly bits, but that is expected with natural fibers) and worked up beautifully

    Comments about Debbie Bliss Winter Garden:

    I would not use this for an item that touches the skin, such as gloves, scarf, socks. I found it far too scratchy for those types of items. It knits up well and feels pretty good in the hands while knitting, however. I'm making a poncho out of it and it is a sturdy yarn for that type of project.

    Pretty, but not happy with the fiber

        Comments about Debbie Bliss Winter Garden:

        I bought a few skeins to make cowls for Christmas presents. Started knitting with one and was really unhappy with the sharp, blue fibers that were mixed in. They made it look really pretty, but I know it would drive me CRAZY if it was around my neck because they were very prickly. Ended up returning the extra skein that I hadn't wound into a ball.

        Comments about Debbie Bliss Winter Garden:

        Label does not state yardage per skein (109 yds). Decided to order additional balls while still avail. rather than mixing yarns in my bulky pullover. Somewhat expensive...but great discount and good price for this luxurious, bulky yarn. Got extra to finish sweater as well as a matching hat and mitts.
        I expect to wear this sweater "forever"! Extremely happy with this yarn.

          Using this yarn to make Oregon vests for myself and my sister. I love how the tweed look knits up and the softness of the yarn.

              I bought two skeins of the Berry, and am using it to crochet a cross-body "origami" bag (you crochet a large rectangle, then fold it and seam to make the finished bag). This yarn is awesome! It works up easily, with very little splitting (if any), and shows the stitch pattern nicely. While not super bulky, it is definitely a bulky yarn (larger than worsted, for sure) and makes up into a fairly dense cloth. I didn't have any difficulty winding the skein into a ball, but I did have to be a little careful because there is so much texture that the strands wanted to catch on each other a bit. Overall, I could not be happier with this purchase, and the bag is going to be gorgeous!!

                I purchased 9 skeins of the winter garden yarn and I knitted a Cable Shrug from the Rustic Garden yarns. I LOVE THIS yarn and the shrug came out gorgeous albeit heavy and warm and its now May in New England!
                I can't wait to wear it when the weather is cold again!

                    Such a disappointment when this arrived. Although it is a gorgeous color, I ordered 'Jade,' it is nowhere near 'super bulky.' I would classify this between worsted and bulky and would never use number 13 needles, as suggested.

                    I am making a purse, so I can easily modify my pattern, casting on more stitches, but now I am afraid I will run out of yarn and have to order more and pay more shipping.

                    WEBS, you really should classify this yarn weight. It is very misleading. Buyer beware!
