    Plymouth Yarn Galway Nep

    Galway Nep from Plymouth takes their popular Galway worsted and adds "neps" - little multicolor flecks that give this traditional wool yarn a tweedy look and texture. Galway Nep is a beautiful classic worsted weight, perfect for any kind of outerwear. Try felting this colorful yarn - the multicolor flecks would bring interest to everything from felted purses to slippers! Made in Peru.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Galway Nep:

          I like this yarn for creating knitted hats that are then felted. It has a good feel and weight. However, I bought the bluish colored one and when it came it was dark green. When felted all the little bits of color go away, and I ended up with a really dark green, solid color hat. I was expecting more of a turquoise green based on the picture. It is a nice hat, though.

              Comments about Plymouth Yarn Galway Nep:

              Very pleased with this yarn, bought in Webs' "garage sale." Surprisingly soft, non-splitting, non-pilling. Probably not for next-to-skin wear, but that wasn't what was expected. I'll be making a huge cabled throw from it and couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.
