        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

                        the only thing i don't like is it's part merino . cuz of inhumane mulesing and i don't know where the merino came from i won't buy it again . i will rather this time look for a more local merino to know the treatment of their sheep. fyi.

                          I have not used this yarn yet and thought I would try it because it was on the
                          discounted site--very glad I purchased it and will order it again--I DO NOT buy from any place other than Web's--their selection and prices are hard to beat and the service in undeniably the best--

                            Love knitting with this yarn! It has such a nice soft squishy texture and the tweed flecks give it interest and hide minor tension irregularities. I am knitting a shawl with a complicated, intricate design and have had to rip out some rows many times. The yarn bounces right back and shows off the design nicely. It rips out easily and I have not noticed any tweed flecks coming off. I will be buying more of this yarn. I got the tweed Charcoal because I wanted a basic color to wear with everything. It's a beautiful warm-toned gray. (Can you tell I love this yarn?!)
