I had read the previous customer review and really agonized over buying this yarn. The Erika Knight pattern I chose featured this yarn. (I don't know if maybe the previous reviewer got a bad batch of yarn - is that possible?) I chose Big Wool in Concrete and I'm almost finished with the sweater I'm knittng. It's absolutely a dream to work with. There is no piling, no fuzziness, it's soft and fluffy, a wonderful "hand" and loft. It works up fast on big needles (#17). I got the WEBS discount and am completely happy and satisfied and would not hesitate to recommend it to any other knitter.

This yarn is just not that great... It's not very soft (especially compared to Como or Twinkle's Soft Chunky), and there is a lot of pilling and fuzz. It needs a sweater shaver by the time you're done knitting it!

    Comments about 16.95 Big Wool:

    This is a super quick project, double strands of super bulky yarn on size 19/20 (35mm) needles! 20 stitches all garter stitch, knit until yarn runs out! Warm, soft, like having a blanket around your neck & shoulders. Featured in Vogue Knitting, even a beginner will manage this. I also teach knitting and this is a great project! I made 4, one in super big silk ( soft but still warm) and one in single strand of the Big Wool and it was perfect for me!

          Comments about 16.95 Big Wool:

          I really love using this yarn. Knits quickly and beautifully. No fuzzy issues like prior comments. It is not as soft as I thought it would be. It feels more like a shetland wool versus a merino. But still really glad that I purchased it. I made a large throw in the concrete color. It's beautiful.
