        Comments about Juniper Moon Farm Willa:

        Returning to knitting after a 25 year hiatus while raising kids, I began by buying some cheaper yarns with nightmarish results. Determined not to give up, I decided to try the Willa yarn. It turns out, it was mostly the yarn and not me, as this sweater is fabulous. I got the dark, marine blue color, which is stunning. It's very easy to work with and works up quickly, due to large needle size. I agree with the other review that it's not like the old, scratchy mohair. I also agree that size 10 needles produced more favorable results than the recommended size 11.

          This is a very lovely yarn to work with - soft with good stitch definition. Items work up quickly with large needles. I am making hats with a #6 circular needle which is equally enjoyable. Knit on!

            Comments about Juniper Moon Farm Willa:

            I'm in love with this yarn! Don't let the mohair content scare you off!! This is made with very high quality mohair, none of that scratchy, itchy stuff found in other mohair yarns. The yarn strand itself feels like butter and the fabric it makes is absolutely stunning- lofty, warm, with a beautifully sutble sheen and a lovely drape. Can't comment on its durability in finished garments because I haven't made anything that will get a lot of friction, but I believe it will wear well, perhaps just getting a fluffier halo with wear. I'm really sad that this has been discontinued.

            Lovely to knit with

            By Beverly

            from NYC

            Pros

            • Beautiful colors
            • Frogging friendly
            • Great for cables
            • Soft and smooth

            Cons

            • slight shedding

            Best Uses

            • Cozy sweaters
            • Hats scarfs mittens

            Comments about Juniper Moon Farm Willa:

            I had the pleasure of knitting one of the trunk show samples with Willa--lucky me! Willa is beautiful to knit with, responds well to frogging, washes well and dries fluffy. Texture shines through. I would suggest using a slightly smaller needle size: 10 or 10.5 rather than 11--slightly firmer texture without diminishing soft, squishy character of yarn.

            Comments about Juniper Moon Farm Willa:

            I am currently knitting a sweater with Willa and it has been an absolute joy to work with. It's so soft and the color is just beautiful. Despite some fiddly stitches in the pattern, the yarn holds together wonderfully--no splitting. It even hold up well to repeated frogging. My only quibble is that I'll sometimes feel like I've got fiber stuck in the back of my throat after knitting. This is my first experience with mohair, and I'm pretty sure I've been spoiled.
