    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Monte Donegal:

    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--

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Monte Donegal:

        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?!)

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Monte Donegal:

        Lovely color, shades of aqua; I bought this to make an infinity scarf to wear with a spring/fall jacket. It is soft enough to be worn directly next to my skin, perfect when I trade turtlenecks for tee shirts. It knit quickly, even for a slow knitter, like myself. The downside is the dye, which turned my fingers blue while knitting, it took a bit of washing & rinsing once the scarf was finished; otherwise this would have been 5 star product.

          making a cable cardigan with this and it knits up beautifully - I contacted the manufacturer about the dye problem and was advsed to give it a vinegar bath when finished to set the dye.

              The yarn is dreamy for the shawl I am knitting now. It is soft and fun to knit on. I won't know if it will work for the sweater I bought it for until I start the sweater. My fear is that it wint be substantial enough

                The yarn above was listed on the web site as 17 skeins available. After ordering the skeins I was informed they were back ordered. Rather misleading. The are available or not.

                  this yarn made the prettiest pair of mittens- not too bulky and not too thin- just right. the blues match 4 different coats that I will wear with the knitted mittens. The range in the color is especially nice, because it created a little "ring" pattern of dark navy amidst the other heathered greyish blues and nebs of tweed.
