      I bought all these 18 yarns to make a blanket and it was a mess. It gets everywhere, it sticks to anything and surely I wouldn't recommend it..I had to use sticky tape to remove the wool from clothing.
      Thank you.

          Comments about 5.69 Berkshire Bulky 100 Gram Hanks:

          I hav dyed a fair amount of this yarn now and have enjoyed it.

          One question I have is about yardange. The bare berkshire bulky is listed as 92 yards per 100 grams. However, the dyed Berkshire has 108 yards per 100 grams. The old skeins of 250 grams were listed at 272 yards which, if divided, would equal 108 yards per 100 grams.

          I have tried to contact WEBS to find out if the yardage is a mistake but have not had any luck-- the feedback form I filled out was no longer supported. I would like to label my hand-dyed yarns correctly without going through the hassle of measuring out a skein. It would be nice to have a way to get the question answered.

          FRUSTRATING SHORT SKEINS!!!

          Comments about 5.69 Berkshire Bulky 100 Gram Hanks:

          Love, love, love this yarn, but HATE the short skeins. I used to purchase this in the 250g/272 yard skeins, but now all that is available are the 100g/92 yard skeins. Worse than useless for most of my projects.

          The good news is that this yarn dyes beautifully, and though I have several dyeing projects that had unexpected results, I have never been disappointed in the final product. This yarn knits up beautifully, and evenly. As with most wool yarns [that aren't superwash] one must take some care not to felt the yarn unintentionally, though it will stand up to a reasonable amount of handling during the dyeing process without significant felting.

          This has been my go to yarn for dyeing projects in the past, and fortunately I had stockpiled quite a bit, but used my last two skeins today, and when I came back to reorder I found that I can no longer purchase the larger skeins - frustrating!!! If I could still order the 250g skeins this would be a 5 star product, but offering short skeins that will require several joins in all my projects makes this product a loser. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 1 star review is my past pleasure working with the larger skeins. Ironically, at the top of the page I am leaving this review is an ad for the 250g skeins with a link that directs me to the 100g skeins. I was so excited to see the link i followed it and almost ordered 20 more skeins before I realized that what I was ordering was the 92 yard skeins. Way to add insult to injury!!!
