                I really love WEBS! I receive the product very quickly after ordering. My husband says I order, then go to the door to wait...LOL. Seriously, it's very professionally taken care of, all the way from the customer service to the proper packaging. I've never had a problem.

                  Easy to block - patterns emerged beautifully in shawls. Works best with a concentrated, methodical technique as the ply easily separates.

                                I made a summer sweater using three colors and have gotten lots of compliments on the scrumptious colors. The yarn was easy to work with and I hope will wash and wear well with the acrylic content

                                  Weekend is the only yarn I use when I knit gifts for anyone in my brother's family. They love the things I knit, but they are hopeless with laundry. This stuff is the most machine-washable yarn I have ever met. In addition to my upcoming nephew's "baby trousseau", I have knit a sweater for myself and can attest to its softness. The range of colors can't be beat. It has a lovely smooth texture and doesn't feel like a cheap acrylic blend. And SO affordable!

                                            Yarn has good spring to it and works up well. Suited for children's sweaters because of its washability.
