A great yarn for super fast knitting. I used it to make a blanket/throw for my son for Christmas. It's super soft, warm and cuddly. As another reviewer noted, it does shed a bit (I quickly learned not to wear black when knitting with gray yarn!) and has a tendency to pill. Hopefully in time that will settle down.

      I made a super bulky newsboy hat that I use to deliver the mail when its cold and/or rainy. This yarn is simply gorgeous, hold up well to wear, keeps me dry in the rain, and is very warm. Would highly recommend for cold weather hats.

        Comments about 23.75 Magnum:

        Normally I wouldn't knit this bulky of yarn for wearing on my body (will add pounds) but this yarn has beautiful colors and is very soft. I mainly wear the vest with the longer length and shorter collar than the opposite (short vest larger collar).
        I bought the same yarn in color Walnut Heather.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was very prompt and as always, excellent packaging.

        Comments about 23.75 Magnum:

        I love the feel of this yarn. It is very soft when worked up. However it is fragile and snags easily. Then, it is hard to work the snags out. Be sure to keep out reach of kitties, because mine ruined almost a whole skein!

          Comments about 23.75 Magnum:

          I use this to knit Outlander-style bulky cowls for Winter gifts. One skein is all I need for a doubled cowl and they are always received with raves.

          Additionally I love the range of colours, particularly the muted heathers which really give a feeling of the romance of misty Scottish moors.
