        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Monte Donegal:

        Knitted a Snowstorm scarf for my nephew's new wife. Ordered 6 balls of forest green and used 5. Balls were consistently 49 or 50 grams and NO knots. Great stitch definition - seed stitch, knits, purls, cables. My mother-in-law tried on the scarf and I have ordered 5 more balls to knit another Snowstorm for her. The yarn is soft and very nice to work with.

            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!

            Delivery was very prompt.

                    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.
