So far I've knit a few gloves with this yarn and it is incredibly soft and pleasant on the hands (when working with it or wearing it) and I'll bet it makes a great soft hat too! I did have to be gentle with it though because if you pull too hard it will pull right apart! Tying knots is tricky and I wouldn't recommend any stitches that involve putting a lot of strain on the yarn. Bottom line: I would definitely buy again.

The only problem I have with my current product received is that my original order of "roving" was much thicker and denser. The current order is not as thick and the "roving" is not as bulky as the previous order. You really have to order your batches all at once to have consistency. Thought I was good ordering a few yelps at a time to space out cost (using natural wool color, thought it would be ok?)But all in all, love the product and learned my lesson on ordering "Big Montana" wool yarns/roving......Beautiful, wonderful yarns and will continue to buy...

            Comments about true Big Montana:

            I bought it because I wanted a really big, heavy yarn to make a very large scarf with. It is a really nice yarn, but the shedding has been a bit of an issue. After wearing the scarf I have grey fibers all over my coat, and I've even noticed that I've left fibers on other people on the subway!

              Comments about true Big Montana:

              Love this thick, bulky Big Montana yarn. BUT remember there is a difference between "Montana" and "BIG Montana". Using the regular "Montana" to knit a throw to match the new bedcover and rug made with the "Big Montana". Make sure you double check which one you order.

              The only problem I have with my current product received is that my original order of "roving" was much thicker and denser. The current order is not as thick and the "roving" is not as bulky as the previous order. You really have to order your batches all at once to have consistency. Thought I was good ordering a few yelps at a time to space out cost (using natural wool color, thought it would be ok?)But all in all, love the product and learned my lesson on ordering "Big Montana" wool yarns/roving......Beautiful, wonderful yarns and will continue to buy...

                Comments about true Big Montana:

                This yarn is quick to knit and quite lofty. THe knitted result is very open stitches. You don't want to make anything that will require an undergarment, like the vest I made. It shed all over my white shirt. I would not use this yarn again. Maybe just hats/mittens. Skip the garments unless you like keeping your cleaner in business!
