    This is wonderful yarn. Thick, warm, beautifully coloured (I am using colour 9143 Aquamarine. It is darker than it is in the picture on the website-deeply green with blue streaking through the yarn. SO pretty!)

    It is really soft and lovely to work with. Highly recommended for bulky yarn needs.

    This yarn is very disappointing. It has a hard feel to it with no give. I have also found knots, and not just one, in every single skein that I bought where the ends were joined. I would not buy this yarn again.

        I made a cardigan with Peruvia Quick, and it's so warm and soft and smooshy! My only regret is that I don't have more winter this year in which to wear it!

            This is the third time I've used Peruvia Quick to make a cabled afghan (perfect gift for grandson headed off to college). Knits up quickly, looks lovely and shows the cable pattern well. Love this yarn.

              I am making a loose hanging, waist length, "vest". Beautiful colors, texture, and a good price. I haven't worn it yet, so I can't comment on feel other than it knits up very nicely, doesn't split easily, and can be undone and reknit perfectly. I'd classify it as a medium weight (as in heaviness of the actual project) when knit.

              Good color but lacks dimension (Castillo, a purply gray)--but maybe all 100 percent Peruvian wool dyes rather flat

                    I made a cardigan with this yarn. I had to start over again and the yarn was a bit stretched then. Other than that, I am very satisfied.

                      This is wonderful yarn. Thick, warm, beautifully coloured (I am using colour 9143 Aquamarine. It is darker than it is in the picture on the website-deeply green with blue streaking through the yarn. SO pretty!)

                      It is really soft and lovely to work with. Highly recommended for bulky yarn needs.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Great shipping. Fast, great condition.
